You don't see something like this?

+++ Statistics Dump +++ (1109968659)
recursive-clients 3
success 95030262
referral 24
nxrrset 302251
nxdomain 3225742
recursion 2378610
failure 15391854

I have scripts running that process these numbers and provide it to Cricket=
, so we can graph our usage.

I have bind 9.2.4 installed on Freebsd 4.11.  I am trying to gather stats
for my recursion usage.  I an the rndc stats command and it dumps to a file,
but there is really nothing in there to use?  Is there a way that I can find
out queries per second, usage, etc.. this way I can capacity plan how much
of a server I will need to handle my recursion?
