DESCRIPTION
       rec_control(1) allows the operator to control a running instance of the
       pdns_recursor.

       The commands that can be passed to the recursor are described on
       http://doc.powerdns.com/rec-control.html

EXAMPLES
       To stop the recursor by hand, run:

           # rec_control quit

       To dump the cache to disk, execute:

           # rec_control dump-cache /tmp/the-cache

OPTIONS
       --help
           provide this helpful message

       --socket-dir
           Where the controlsocket will live

       --socket-pid
           When running in SMP mode, pid of pdns_recursor to control

       --timeout
           Number of seconds to wait for the remote PowerDNS Recursor to
           respond. Set to 0 for infinite.

COMMANDS
       dump-cache filename
           Dumps the entire cache to the filename mentioned. This file should
           not exist already, PowerDNS will refuse to overwrite it. While
           dumping, the recursor will not answer questions.

           Retrieve a statistic. For items that can be queried, see
           http://doc.powerdns.com/recursor-stats.html

           Retrieve all known statistics.

       ping

       reload-zones
           rec_control wipe-cache powerdns.org.. Versions beyond 3.1 don't
           need the trailing dot. Consider not only wiping www.domain.com.
           but also domain.com., as the cached nameservers or target of CNAME
           may continue to be undesired.
