Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for the reply. My aim is perform the rndc stats queries from  
one machine to multiple remote machines but save the remote  
statistics files in different locations on the initial machine  
performing all the rndc queries. I seem to be only able to define one  
statistics file on the source machine and I was hoping to be able to  
create a separate statistics file for each destination machine on the  
source machine.
