NAME

ixplore - A tool that provides insights into IXFRs

SYNOPSIS

ixplore COMMAND COMMAND_OPT...

ixplore diff ZONE BEFORE AFTER

ixplore track IP ADDRESS PORT ZONE DIRECTORY

DESCRIPTION

ixplore is a tool to work with IXFR (incremental zonetransfers) in two modes (specified by COMMAND): diff or track.

In the 'diff' mode, it will show a diff(1)-like output between BEFORE and AFTER.

In the 'track' mode, ixplore consumes IXFRs from IP ADDRESS and writes the resulting zonefiles out to DIRECTORY/ZONE-serial. If no initial zonefiles exist, an initial AXFR will be done first. ixplore will then check the SOA serial on IP ADDRESS for ZONE every SOA Refresh seconds and perform an IXFR if the serial has increased.
