Description

NAMED-JOURNALPRINT(8)                BIND9               NAMED-JOURNALPRINT(8)



NAME
       named-journalprint - print zone journal in human-readable form

SYNOPSIS
       named-journalprint {journal}

DESCRIPTION
       named-journalprint prints the contents of a zone journal file in a
       human-readable form.

       Journal files are automatically created by named when changes are made
       to dynamic zones (e.g., by nsupdate). They record each addition or
       deletion of a resource record, in binary format, allowing the changes
       to be re-applied to the zone when the server is restarted after a
       shutdown or crash. By default, the name of the journal file is formed
       by appending the extension .jnl to the name of the corresponding zone
       file.

       named-journalprint converts the contents of a given journal file into a
       human-readable text format. Each line begins with "add" or "del", to
       indicate whether the record was added or deleted, and continues with
       the resource record in master-file format.
