This command have a useful function. Especially when we want to measure the speed our access from localhost through proxy to some website.
In my case, I have a problem with squid. I though the problem is squid but no.
I read in http://email@example.com/msg15689.html that I should check /etc/resolv.conf file again.
This is my resolv.conf :
The guy in mail archive suggested that I should use nameserver 127.0.0.1 instead of kanaanlocaldomain.com it will make everything shorter.
of maybe I should try to delete 127.0.0.1 so the server will directly search the address through the dns 188.8.131.52.
And Yes.. I don’t have the slower of failed connection anymore.
This is the result of
#time dig google.com @localhost
