NAME

       bind8_named2dlf - convert BIND8 named logs into dlf format

SYNOPSIS

       bind8_named2dlf

DESCRIPTION

       This script converts each line in a BIND8 named log to a dnszone dlf record.  It is tested
       using Bind 8.2 logs.  We're not aware of any changes in the logging format in any Bind 8.*
       version, we expect any bind 8.* log to get processed fine by this script.

       The following lines are recognized:

       ·   approved/denied AXFR requests

       ·   completed zone transfers

       ·   loaded master and slave zones

       ·   denied dynamic DNS updates

DLF format

       The DLF format of the dnszone superservice is

       server
           Name of the DNS server

       time
           Timestamp for the request

       axfr_host
           IP address of the host requesting the AXFR

       axfr_zone
           Name of the zone being requested

       axfr_what
           approved, denied or axfr

       loaded_zone
           Name of the zone just loaded

       loaded_serial
           Serial of the zone just loaded

       loaded_role
           master or slave

       updatedenied_host
           IP address of the host requesting the update

       updatedenied_zone
           Name of the zone being updated

       Due to the nature of the different meanings of the lines in the logfile (not every line
       has both a AXFR-request, loaded a zone and gotten an update request), one or more fields
       can be replaced by a 0 or a -. These fields are automaticly filtered out for the different
       kind of reports.

       Example of DLF lines are:

       AXFR approved
           tim 1026644876 10.10.10.1 algron.com approved - 0 - - -

       update denied
           tim 1026645567 - - - - 0 - 10.in-addr.arpa 10.199.16.218

       master zone loaded
           tim 1026525210 - - - nigelbowen.com.au 2002071301 master - -

EXAMPLES

       To process a log as produced by bind8:

        $ bind8_named2dlf < named-log

       bind8_named2dlf will be rarely used on its own, but is more likely called by
       lr_log2report:

        $ lr_log2report bind8_named < /var/log/named
