After installing dnsmasq on a Debian 'Lenny' system I am experimenting with, I'm curious if it's working. DNS lookup doesn't seem to be faster. The browser still seems to spend a lot of time looking up site addresses. How can I tell where each DNS query is going? Or how many queries there are and how many are getting caught by the cache?
