NAME

named - Plugin to monitor named statistics

ABOUT

This is a bit experimental, we will have to see which statistics prove to have any meaning to get a feel with what happens on the nameserver.

USAGE

In your named.conf you must have statistics-interval set:

 options {
    ...
    statistics-interval 1;
    ...
 };

The number is in minutes. At each interval just 3 lines is dumped. It can be desturbing if you usually read the logs yourself, but a 1 minute interval ensures very updated information to munin. 5 minutes is the maximum I'd say.

The name of the file where syslog puts daemon output - ie the named statistics output. On solaris this is /var/adm/messages, on most linuxes it is /var/log/messages. But on Debian it is /var/log/daemon.log which is read restricted so we have to run as a group or user with read rights, or remove the restrictions on the log file.

CONFIGURATION

Configuration parameters for @@CONFDIR@@/named, if you need to override the defaults below:

 [named]
  env.logfile   - set which log file to use

To ensure read access to the log files, you will need to add something like:

 [named]
  group adm

DEFAULT CONFIGURATION

 [named]
  env.logfile /var/adm/messages or /var/log/daemon.log
