Thread: Meaning of fields in named_dump.db

  1. Meaning of fields in named_dump.db

    All,
    I was looking at the named_dump.db file and didn't understand the
    meaning of several fields.

    1. [v4 TTL 7] [v4 success] [v6 unexpected] [v4 not_found] [v6 nxrrset]
    [ttl 1777] [flags 00000000] [srtt 333]

    What exactly are these?

    I know that the IPs with lower srtts are preferred but I don't know
    what is not_found or unexpected mean?

    Also what is the difference b/w lowercase ttl (ttl) and uppercase ttl
    (TTL) in the fields above ?

    thanks in advance
