Hi, In my bind BIND 9.10.0-P2 on linux/64 instance, I use slaved rpz zones.
Usually, all works as expected. On an infrequent basis, I start getting errors related to that zone, e.g.: main.log:Sep 4 07:58:24 dns named: 04-Sep-2014 07:58:24.509 general: error: zone rpz.spamhaus.org/IN/internal: journal rollforward failed: journal out of sync with zone main.log:Sep 4 07:58:24 dns named: 04-Sep-2014 07:58:24.509 general: warning: zone rpz.spamhaus.org/IN/internal: unable to load from '/namedb/slave/rpz.spamhaus.org.zone.jnl'; renaming file to '/namedb/slave/jn-NI0GTceo' for failure analysis and retransferring. main.log:Sep 4 07:58:24 dns named: 04-Sep-2014 07:58:24.509 general: warning: zone rpz.spamhaus.org/IN/internal: unable to load from '/namedb/slave/rpz.spamhaus.org.zone'; renaming file to '/namedb/slave/db-9mSfiPuk' for failure analysis and retransferring. Once (one or more?) of these errors occur, named stops responding to clients' queries/lookups/etc.; it's still running, just not responding. Brute-force restarting bind fixes it, until the next transfer attempt from master->slave -- then it freezes up again. Noting journal rollforward failed: journal out of sync with zone if I rndc sync -clean rndc reload or manually 'stop' bind rm -f slave/*jnl 'start' bind it seems to fix all the issues. The next N transfers are all ok, and bind keeps responding. Until -- at some "random" point -- the journal gets out of sync again. Is there a way -- from 'inside' bind -- to monitor for those errors/fails, and automatically sync & reload? Or should I simply run a sync/reload job externally with cron on a 'fairly frequent' basis? That seems wasteful ... This ONLY happens with the slaved rpz zone (I do NOT have any other non-rpz slaves) -- I'm not clear what's causing the the out-of-sync (corruption?) in the 1st place. Suggestions?
