ldns-compare-zones(1)	    General Commands Manual	 ldns-compare-zones(1)

NAME
       ldns-compare-zones  -  read and compare two zonefiles and print differ-
       ences

SYNOPSIS
       ldns-compare-zones [-c] [-U] [-u] [-i] [-d] [-z]	[-s]  ZONEFILE1	 ZONE-
       FILE2

DESCRIPTION
       ldns-compare-zones  reads  two DNS zone files and prints	number of dif-
       ferences.
       Output is formatted to:
	       +NUM_INS	       -NUM_DEL	       ~NUM_CHG

       Except with the -U or -u	option.	 Then the output is formatted to:
	       +NUM_INS	       -NUM_DEL	       ~NUM_CHG	       =NUM_EQ

       The major comparison is based on	the owner name.	If an  owner  name  is
       present in zonefile 1, but not in zonefile 2, the resource records with
       this owner name are considered deleted, and counted as NUM_DEL.	If  an
       owner  name  is	present	 in zonefile 2,	but not	in zonefile 1, the re-
       source records with  this  owner	 name  are  considered	inserted,  and
       counted as NUM_INS. If an owner name is present in both,	but there is a
       difference in the amount	or content of the records, these  are  consid-
       ered changed, and counted as NUM_CHG.

OPTIONS
       -c     Print resource records whose owner names are in both zone	files,
	      but with different resource records. (a.k.a. changed)

       -U     From resource records whose owner	names are in both zone	files,
	      but with different resource records, print the unchanged records
	      too (a.k.a. changed++).

       -u     Print resource records whose owner names are in both zone	files,
	      and which	resource records are the same. (a.k.a. unchaged)

       -i     Print  resource  records	whose  owner names are present only in
	      ZONEFILE2	(a.k.a.	inserted)

       -d     Print resource records whose owner names	are  present  only  in
	      ZONEFILE1	(a.k.a.	deleted)

       -a     Print  all changes (except unchanged). Specifying	this option is
	      the same as specifying -c	-i and -d.

       -z     Suppress zone sorting; this option is not	 recommended;  it  can
	      cause  records to	be incorrectly marked as changed, depending of
	      the nature of the	changes.

       -s     Do not exclude the SOA record  from  the	comparison.   The  SOA
	      record  may  then	show up	as changed due to a new	serial number.
	      Off by default since you may be interested  to  know  if	(other
	      zone apex	elements) have changed.

       -e     Exit with	status code 2 when zones differ.

       -h     Show usage and exit

       -v     Show the version and exit
