Hi Hugo,

Look at the statistics-channels usage in named.conf. You can get nicely formatted data via http containing all of this information.

Otherwise, check out statistics-file coupled with zone-statistics. You can use rndc stats with these defined to dump statistics to the file you define with the statistics-file statement.

I have the following problem;

In bind8, I can find statistics every hour in the log file (see here below).
But in BIND9 I do not find the same statistics in the log file.
Is it possible to have it?
