Admin4 is a tool for server maintenance via several plugin modules, running on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and many more platforms. Currently, plugins for BIND DNS, LDAP, and PostgreSQL are included. It is designed as a framework, using Python for fast development of plugins and custom modifications. The DNS plugin should be able to query (axfr) any type of server, and performs updates via DDNS, which ensures that it won't interfere with other DDNS clients (DHCP, SAMBA4). For BIND 9.7 and up, statistics are supported as well and used to retrieve the server's zones automatically. The LDAP plugin features browsing and generic editing of all types of LDAP entries with schema support. In addition, high-level editing of objects like users, groups and samba domains is supported. Custom objectClasses and attributes can easily be added. The PostgreSQL module features a query tool with centrally stored snippets, a data tool with filter presets and a database object browser.
With a small codebase, the PowerDNS Recursor is an advanced resolver currently serving the DNS resolving needs of over 80 million Internet connections. Besides high performance (using kqueue or epoll, over 100 thousand qps on commodity hardware), it provides advanced anti-spoofing measures. In addition, the program caches server performance and timeouts, making it both network and user friendly. It also has built-in hooks for making graphs with rrdtool, providing insight into nameserver performance.

The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) implements an Internet name server for Unix operating systems. The BIND consists of a server (or `daemon') called `named' and a suite of associated tools and libraries. A name server is a network service that enables clients to name resources or objects and share this information with other objects in the network via the Domain Name System (DNS).
s6-dns is a small, efficient, complete, and IPv6-ready DNS client library, with synchronous as well as asynchronous APIs. It is designed to replace libresolv in projects that need to perform DNS resolution. It also comes with small command-line utilities to make common and not so common DNS queries.
