DNS Client Resolver Cache

DNS client Resolver Cache is a type of local cache which stores the DNS query results in a cache. For subsequent DNS queries, the client machine checks the local cache and finds the matching query entries. If it doesn’t find, it sends the query to their DNS server and stores the query result in a cache for later use.
Storing the query result in the DNS client resolver reduces the network traffic between DNS client and server and performs faster query resolution.
