Hi, When does create record / delete record in Designate take effect? Immediately or does it require some event?

Rumor is that it isn't immediately effective in icehouse and Kilo, but I'm hoping there has been progress in the later releases.

I've been reading through Designate documents but cannot find the answer, I'm hoping someone can help me here :-) Thanks in advance.

Designate is not instant, but it does not require any additional events.

What we do is update zone information via Zone Transfer - this means that it can take time for all DNS servers to become consistent.

The time it takes will depend on the server used, how many there is, and what networking conditions are like between the DNS server and the Designate services.

When a Zone or RecordSet has a status of "ACTIVE" it has been fully propagated to all servers.
