I've setup knot to AXFR 24 zones from our MS domain controllers but
three zones fail mysteriously. After enabling debug logging
knot adds additional line with the reason - 'trailing data'.
In the pcap file created with tcpdump I see that our server starts to
send TCP resets in the middle of the transfer.
Each time resets are sent after downloading approximately the same
amount of data, this amount differ for each zone (81kb for one, 49kb for
I am able to download the zone with dig or kdig. We also have a
different server with powerdns which is able to download the zones
I've also tried to setup different server (with bind9) serving one of
the zones and have knot to download it from there. It worked just fine.
I can send the log file snippet (with zone name and ip addresses) as
well as the pcap file off the record.
Could you, please, help me with solving this problem?

I noticed that when using e.g the GeoIP module to return a CNAME, that
CNAME does not get resolved, even if it is within the instances
authority. That forces the client/recursor to issue another request.
Perusing the code for a while, I noticed that there is a rather simple
way to achieve this: the GeoIP module, if the result is a CNAME, _could_
set `qdata->name` to the CNAME target and return
`KNOT_IN_STATE_FOLLOW` instead of `KNOT_IN_STATE_HIT`.
While that does seem to work, I am not so sure if it might constitute an
abuse of interfaces. Returning `KNOT_IN_STATE_FOLLOW` seems legit, but I
wasn't so sure about modifying `qdata` (specifically, in the context of
As such, I would be interested if this has ever come up before, what
possible approaches might look like, what you think of the above one,
and if tackling this problem is of interest at all. If I have a better
understanding and there is a good approach to this, I'd be happy to
submit a patch.

I am trying to run knot DNS using maxmind GeoIP and it works well.
Now I also want it to be able to do weighted on those answers.
E.g. If country US, it will provide 3 answers and those will be weighted.
Is that correct and possible?
Dear KNOT team,
We're now considering an update on our zone signer and KNOT DNS seems to be a good choice.
I looked through your documentation and do not see the performace data about signing big zones.
When the zone has about 10 millions entries , how long will it take for KNOT DNS to sign it completely?
I'll appreciate it if you can give me a feedback.
