Description Serge Droz 2018-04-07 19:29:11 UTC
Description of problem: bind 9.11 has support for dnstap http://dnstap.info/ which useful, if you want to run eg  a passive DNS service.
Currently this is not enabled. It would be desireable to enable this feature, possibly through a config option in the spec file. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

It's not there (The config file does not contain --dnstap)

Comment 1 Petr Menšík 2018-11-05 17:10:25 UTC
I played with it, all dependencies are already there. I put experimental commits to my beta fork branch [1]. But it does one thing that prevented me pushing it into master. It adds new dependencies not only to named service, but also to all tools and libraries used. I am not sure whether we want such thing. bind-utils would require protobuf library this way.

We want dnstap inside, but I would like to find a way to include it just in server.

Comment 2 Petr Menšík 2018-11-05 17:53:45 UTC
It is implemented that way on Debian, also utils depends on protobuf-c library. It is done so since buster, not yet in stable [1].

Comment 3 Petr Menšík 2018-11-05 17:56:49 UTC
Pushed support for it into current master, but it has to be enabled when compiling. If someone wants to build his own package with its support:

fedpkg clone --anonymous bind
cd bind
fedpkg [--release f28] mockbuild --with DNSTAP

Comment 4 Petr Menšík 2019-03-14 19:00:39 UTC
Forgot to change bug status. Enabled it in Fedora 30 and more recent. Because new dependencies not enabling it in Fedora 29 and earlier.
