I have seen a couple of post on SF like;
I want to graph statistics on 2 bind resolvers and 2 bind authoritative servers (into Cacti). It seems that adding the following to named.conf (or named.conf.options) enables the dumping of statistics when you run the file
statistics-file "/var/cache/bind/named.stats"; zone-statistics yes;
The stats in the named.stats file given are pretty poor;
cat /var/cache/bind/named.stats +++ Statistics Dump +++ (1359639340) success 25 referral 0 nxrrset 0 nxdomain 3 recursion 43 failure 0 duplicate 0 dropped 0 --- Statistics Dump --- (1359639340)
I believe there is a poor amount of statistics given because of the version of bind running, is that true?
named -version BIND 9.4.2-P2.1
Look at all the stats this chap gets for example. Do I need to upgrade bind to get better stats, or is there some other way?
