PowerDNS is a versatile nameserver which supports a large number
of different backends ranging from simple zonefiles to relational
databases and load balancing/failover algorithms.
PowerDNS tries to emphasize speed and security.
This package contains several tools to debug DNS issues. These tools do not
require any part of the PowerDNS server components to work.
* dnsbulktest: A resolver stress-tester
* dnsgram: Show per 5-second statistics to study intermittent resolver issues
* dnsreplay: Replay a pcap with DNS queries
* dnsscan: Prints the query-type amounts in a pcap
* dnsscope: Calculates statistics without replaying traffic
* dnstcpbench: Perform TCP benchmarking of DNS servers
* dnswasher: Clean a pcap of identifying IP information
* ixplore: Explore diffs from IXFRs
* nsec3dig: Calculate the correctness of NSEC3 proofs
* saxfr: AXFR zones and show extra information

* Remove automatic database configuration.
Some database backends previously used dbconfig-common as a convenient
way of setting up the respective database server automatically,
including upgrades of the database schema. This has caused numerous
issues over the years, and has now been removed.
As we no longer know the database server credentials, drop generation
of configuration files.
Closer to the upstream packages, too.
