I'm running ubuntu 14, which uses dnsmasq as a local resolver on When I issue a dig query, dig informs me it's using as its resolver:

;; Query time: 3 msec
;; WHEN: Wed Mar 29 09:36:06 CDT 2017
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 63

However, I would like to know what host dnsmasq is using as its resolver. On my system, `ps ax' shows that dnsmasq is started with the command:

/usr/sbin/dnsmasq --no-resolv --keep-in-foreground --no-hosts --bind-interfaces --pid-file=/run/sendsigs.omit.d/network-manager.dnsmasq.pid --listen-address= --conf-file=/var/run/NetworkManager/dnsmasq.conf --cache-size=0 --proxy-dnssec --enable-dbus=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.dnsmasq –conf-dir=/etc/NetworkManager/dnsmasq.d

Both the file /var/run/NetworkManager/dnsmasq.conf and the directory /etc/NetworkManager/dnsmasq.d/ are empty, so it's likely that dnsmasq is receiving its resovlers from Network Manager over the dbus interface.

Is there any way to get dnsmasq to log when it issues a new query to a resolver?
