The Domain Name System (DNS) is a critical component of the Internet
infrastructure. It allows users to interact with Web sites using
human-readable names and provides a foundation for transparent
client request distribution among servers in Web platforms, such as
content delivery networks. In this paper, we present methodologies
for efficiently discovering the complex client-side DNS infrastructure.
We further develop measurement techniques for isolating the
behavior of the distinct actors in the infrastructure. Using these
strategies, we study various aspects of the client-side DNS infrastructure
and its behavior with respect to caching, both in aggregate
and separately for different actors.
