If building from a git checkout, the
autotools must be installed. Run the
./autogen.sh script first to bootstrap the build system.
dnstap encoded files can be decoded and printed to
stdout by running
dnstap-ldns -r on the
The output format can be selected by passing additional command-line flags. The
-q flag specifies the "quiet text" output format, which is compact (one line per
dnstap frame), and excludes full DNS message details. The
-y flag specifies a more verbose multi-document YAML-encoded output format that includes full DNS message details, as parsed by the ldns library.
dnstap-ldns can also read bare hex-encoded dnstap protobufs without Frame Stream encoding. The
-x flag will automatically detect whether the input data is a string of hex characters (possibly with embedded whitespace), or is in the generic record data format defined by RFC 3597.
