I have some servers.
I try not to update them.
They are tools, not toys.

The lights are all out.
The servers chanting loud.
Like monks at compline.

Either you and the man page disagree about what "chop" means or your less is broken.

comment DNS timeout in windows domain
4% packet loss isn't catastrophic but it something that I'd look further into. To narrow down the point where packets are lost, I'd try plugging in a client at various places (maybe you have multiple ethernet switches between client and server) and - during acceptable sevice downtime - swap out patch cables at the server, use a different switch port etc.

comment DNS timeout in windows domain
I use ping to check for packet loss. try using larger packet sizes and larger counts e.g. ping -n 100 -l 512 dns.example.com (Windows) or ping -c 100 -s 512 dns.example.com (Unix/GNU-Linux).
