Just wondering if anyone may have seen this before:

The KWF setup I'm using has started generating lots of error logs to this effect:

(4503:10049) Socket error: Failed to forward DNS query to a.b.c.d.
(4503:10049) Socket error: Failed to forward DNS query to w.x.y.z.

(... where a.b.c.d and w.x.y.z are, of course, both DNS servers from our upstream internet provider)

The thing is, DNS still works ok. Everything resolves - it's just KWF is now generating lots of errors of this type, and I have been unable to find any mention of this issue anywhere else in the forums or on the internet.

Because of the particular internet connection this KWF setup uses, both DNS IP's tend to have a high ping - in the 600ms to 800ms range. So I am wondering if this

a) could be a root cause of this message and

b) if there is some sort of threshold I can set with respect to DNS forwarding that would stop these errors from being generated

Thanks everybody
