I use hpObserver to verify large lists of domains. I have found when processing a list that has previously been verified that you get a noticeable increase in throughput when the list is sorted by their prior IP address.

The validation method I am using is "IP Resolution (rDNS) Only" if that is what you are asking.

I assumed the performance was due to caching either locally or in OpenDNS which I use.

Question:

Would cache be the reason why when I switch to use the external server
to get the real IP info on sites OpenDNS deems to be phishing sites,
that for a number of sites recently verified, I still got the OpenDNS "hit-phish" info?
