I understand the RFC2136 support in git (and upcoming 3.4.0) may help here

3.5.3 choked on this; 3.6-rc1 haven't even winked. 
server-down-max-fails=32 for the win!

as well as filter1.lua

-- from pastiebin

function endswith(s, send)
         return #s >= #send and s:find(send, #s-#send+1, true) and true or false
end


blocklist={"gzkthg.com.", "sidear.cn.", "qe120.com.", "38.com.", "jqdns.net."}

function preresolve ( remoteip, domain, qtype )
        if string.find(domain, "^%d%d%d%d%d%.info%.$") then
                return pdns.DROP, {}
        end
        for k,v in pairs(blocklist) do
                if endswith(domain, v) then
                        return pdns.DROP, {}
                end
        end
        return pdns.PASS, {}
end

Stefan has a point about the finer points and shortcomings of round-robin load balancing, but if you just need it to be "pretty good" then you're all set.

Hi,
I have a CentOS machine with PowerDNS 3.3.1 and a recursor 3.5.3 on the same machine. Yesterday i wanted to get out some numbers for monitoring. If i do a "/etc/init.d/pdns dump" i get:

...
recursing-answers=109055,
recursing-questions=109055,
(fine)

udp-answers=125236,
udp-queries=125237,
(fine)

udp4-answers=8164,
udp4-queries=62498,
udp6-answers=8018,
udp6-queries=62739,

The sum of udp4 and upd6-queries matches the value of udp-queries, fine. But the sum of the udp4 and udp6-answers is far away from the value of udp-answers.

Why that? Shouldn't it be the same as udp-answers?

Thanks
Urs

Can someone point me in the right direction.
When I ping news.pax.ch over a Windows DNS Server I get a IP Adress. When i do this over powerdns I don't get one.

Yes I know news.pax.ch isn't a A Rercord...but anyway why does it work in other DNS Servers?

probably - are you running the recursor and auth server on the same box or are you just trying to query this on the auth server (which would explain the output) ?
