The dns-control command manages local caching for the name server.
All dns-control command outputs end with either a completion message or a failure message. Examples are: "Command cmdname completed successfully" and "Command cmdname failed."
Some commands require the DNS cache to be running before they can be executed. In these cases, the only output is: "The DNS Cache is currently stopped." Start the cache with the dns-control start command before you run those commands.
The command components are as follows:
Start the local caching name server.
Stop the local caching name server.
Restart the local caching name server.
Display the status of the local caching name server.
Flush the cache.
List the locally configured name servers for the resolver.
Increment the tracing (debug) level by +1.
Disable tracing (debug).
Forces a reload of the name server configuration information.
