This is an old thread and likely there is a better way to do this, but
since you are running an older version of SA, it may still work:

Basically, use of a local caching DNS server is recommended and you
are likely to find that programs like Pyzor and Razor (if you use
them) are going to take up quite a bit of time:

SA check: 6952 (94%)96,

Hopefully if you are using Razor and.or Pyzor they are confgured
