 NAME
      sig_named - send signals to the domain name server

 SYNOPSIS
      sig_named [-v] [debug [+] debug-level | dump | kill | restart | stats |
      trace]

 DESCRIPTION
      sig_named sends the appropriate signal to the domain name server
      /usr/sbin/named.	The process ID is obtained from /var/run/named.pid
      or from ps(1) if /var/run/named.pid does not exist.

    Options
      sig_named recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:

	   -v		  Verify that the name server is running before
			  sending the signal.  The verification is done
			  using ps (see ps(1)).

	   debug [+]debug-level
			  Set the debugging output sent to
			  /var/tmp/named.run to debug-level.  If debugging
			  is already on, it is turned off before the debug
			  level is set.	 If + precedes debug-level, the
			  current debugging level is raised by the amount
			  indicated.  If debug-level is zero, debugging is
			  turned off.

	   dump		  Signal the name server to dump its database.	The
			  database is dumped to /var/tmp/named_dump.db.

	   kill		  Kill the name server process.

	   restart	  Signal the name server to reload its database.

	   stats	  Remove the old statistics file,
			  /var/tmp/named.stats.	 Signal the name server to
			  dump its statistics.	Show the statistics file on
			  the standard output.

	   trace	  Toggles tracing of incoming queries to
			  /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log.
