lsdnssec - Man Page

List DNSSEC components of zones from files or directories


  lsdnssec [-d 1-9] [OPTIONS] [FILES OR DIRECTORIES...]


The lsdnssec program summarizes information about DNSSEC-related files. These files may be specified on the command line or found in directories that were given on the command line.  The -d flag controls the amount of detail in the lsdnssec output.

lsdnssec displays the following information about each zone for which it collects information:


Key information is shown about the keys currently in use.  A bar graph is included that shows the age of the key with respect to the configured expected key lifetime.

This information is collected from any .krf files lsdnssec finds.

rolling status

If any zone keys are being rolled via rollerd, then the status of the rolling state is shown.  The time needed to reach the next state is also displayed.

This information is collected from any .rollrec or .rrf files found by lsdnssec.



Only prints information about the named zone(s).


Only prints information about zones currently being rolled by rollerd and where either a zsk or a ksk rollover is taking place and is in phase NUMBER.

If the phase NUMBER is specified as 0, then any zone in any rolling phase will be printed (but not zones that aren't being rolled at all).

This flag is especially useful to find all of your zones that are currently in KSK rolling phase 6, which requires operator intervention to propagate the new DS records into the parent zone.


Show only rolling information from the rollrec files.  By default both roll-state and key information is shown.


Show only keying information from the krf files.  By default both roll-state and key information is shown.


Normally rollerd calculates the age of a key based on the last time a key was rolled.  However, it's also possible to calculate the age of a key based on the difference between the time of execution and when the key was created (which was typically before the rolling began). The -K flag switches to this second mode of key age calculation (which will not match how rollerd actually performs).


The -M flag gives an abbreviated version of lsdnssec output that is intended for use by monitoring systems.  It displays the zone name, the rollover phase, and the time remaining in that phase.  This option implicitly sets the -r flag on and sets the detail level to 1.

-d 1-9
--detail 1-9

Controls the amount of information shown in the output.  A level of 9 shows everything; a level of 1 shows a minimal amount.  The default level is 5.


Turns on extra debugging information.
