Abstract These days DNS is used in quite a different manner than just a few years ago. For example CNN is using DNS for load distribution between its servers while Akamai is using it for ``location-aware resolution''. In addition, it has been shown that the duration of the DNS lookup time can be a significant part of the duration of an application transaction, such as a Web page download. In this document we examine, how the current DNS system is actually used. Therefore, we passively analyze network traces gathered at the Saarland University. To this end we analyze the components of DNS lookups, their latencies and their relationship to the triggering TCP connections.
