DESCRIPTION

Posadis is an open-source Domain Name Server. It features a modular, extensible structure, standards compliance and good karma.

The Posadis homepage can be found at http://www.posadis.org/. On that website, you'll also find the full Posadis documentation. For more information on the Posadisrc file, consult the posadisrc(5) manual page.

Posadis is based on the Poslib library. For more information, goto http://www.posadis.org/poslib/.  

SIGNALS

Currently, Posadis only supports these signals (beyond SIGTERM and SIGKILL, that is):

SIGUSR1 - Toggles the Posadis query logging feature

SIGUSR2 - Dumps the Posadis cache to /tmp/posadis-cachedump

Posadis will probably support SIGHUP to re-load its configuration soon in the future.

You can find out the PID of the Posadis process by running "/etc/init.d/posadis status" (or wherever the Posadis init script is located). You can toggle query logging using this init script as well, by running


  /etc/init.d/posadis togglequerylog

(optionally, you can enter "tql" as a short notation for "togglequerylog")
