ldns-gen-zone(1)					      ldns-gen-zone(1)

       ldns-gen-zone  -	 read  a zonefile and print it while adding DS records
       and extra RR's

       ldns-gen-zone ZONEFILE

       ldns-gen-zone reads a DNS zone file and prints it.

       It is build for speed, not for a nice formatting. The  output  has  one
       resource record per line and no pretty-printing makeup.

       DNSSEC  data  (NSEC,  NSEC3,  RRSIG or DNSKEY) is not stripped. You may
       want to use ldns-read-zone for that. Existing DS records are  also  not

       The  idea  is  to use this tool for quickly generating a representative
       artificial zonefile from a real zonefile, to use it  for	 testing  pur‐

       -a NUM Adds  NUM	 extra artificial NS RRSets to the output.  The RRSets
	      owner names start with 'xn--' in an attempt to ensure uniqueness
	      (nl.-zone	 does  not  support  IDN's - and this tool was written
	      with that knowledge in mind).

	      An artificial NS RRSet has two NS records;  ns1.example.com  and

       -p NUM Add  NUM% of DS RRSets to the NS RRSets (anywhere between 1-4 DS
	      records per RRSet).

       -o ORIGIN
	      Sets an $ORIGIN, which can be handy if the one in	 the  zonefile
	      is  set  to '@' for example. If there is an $ORIGIN in the zone‐
	      file, this option will silently be ignored.

       -s     This is the recommended way of processing large zones  that  are
	      already  sorted  and  canonicalized (ie lowercase). It skips the
	      sorting and canonicalization step that is required for  properly
	      grouping	RRSets together (before adding any DS records to them.
	      Skipping this step will speed things up.

	      It is not recommended to use this option if you want to  add  DS
	      records to unsorted, non-canonicalized zones.

       -h     Show usage and exit.

       -v     Show version and exit.

       ldns-gen-zone -a 100000 -p 10 -s ./zonefile.txt
	      Read  a zonefile, add 100.000 artificial NS RRSets and 10% of DS
	      records, print it to standard output. Don't sort (will only work
	      well if the input zonefile is already sorted and canonicalized).

       ldns-gen-zone  -p 10 -s -o nl zonefile.txt | named-compilezone -s rela‐
       tive -i none -o zonefile_10.txt nl /dev/stdin
	      This creates a nicely formatted  zone  file  with	 the  help  of
	      named-compilezone.   It  adds  10%  DS  records to the .nl zone,
	      reformats it and saves it as zonefile_10.txt.

       Initially written by Marco Davids, several modifications added by  Miek
       Gieben, both from SIDN.

       Report bugs to <ldns-team@nlnetlabs.nl>.

       Only undiscovered ones.

       May  require  a	machine with a considerable amount of memory for large
       zone files.

       Fake DS records hashes are generated as digest type SHA-256  (RFC4509).
       Be  aware  not  to  change the DIGESTTYPE #define in the source code in
       anything else but 2 if you want to keep things realistic.

       Despite a number of efforts, this program is still not the  fastest  in
       the world.
