namebench 2.0

namebench provides personalized DNS server recommendations based on your browsing history.

WARNING: This tool is in the midst of a major rewrite. The "master" branch is currently in experimental form and currently lacks a user interface, nor does it support any command-line options.

For stable binaries, please see https://code.google.com/p/namebench/

What can one expect in namebench 2.0?

  • Faster
  • Simpler interface
  • More comprehensive results
  • CDN benchmarking
  • DNSSEC support

BUILDING:

Building requires Go 1.2 to be installed: http://golang.org/

  • Create a workspace directory, and cd into it.
  • Prepare your workspace directory:
    export GOPATH=`pwd`
    git clone https://github.com/google/namebench.git src/github.com/google/namebench
    go get github.com/mattn/go-sqlite3
    go get code.google.com/p/go.net/publicsuffix
    go get github.com/miekg/dns
  • Build it.
    cd src/github.com/google/namebench
    go build namebench.go

You should have an executable named 'namebench' in the current directory.

RUNNING:

  • End-user: run ./namebench, which should open up a UI window.
  • Developer, run ./namebench_dev_server.sh for an auto-reloading webserver at http://localhost:9080/
