<a name="id2658352"></a><h2>DESCRIPTION</h2>
<p><span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span>
is the daemon providing name lookup
services to clients that use the BIND 9 lightweight resolver
library. It is essentially a stripped-down, caching-only name
server that answers queries using the BIND 9 lightweight
resolver protocol rather than the DNS protocol.
</p>
<p><span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span>
listens for resolver queries on a
UDP port on the IPv4 loopback interface, 127.0.0.1. This
means that <span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span> can only be used by
processes running on the local machine. By default, UDP port
number 921 is used for lightweight resolver requests and
responses.
</p>
<p>
Incoming lightweight resolver requests are decoded by the
server which then resolves them using the DNS protocol. When
the DNS lookup completes, <span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span> encodes
the answers in the lightweight resolver format and returns
them to the client that made the request.
</p>
<p>
If <code class="filename">/etc/resolv.conf</code> contains any
<code class="option">nameserver</code> entries, <span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span>
sends recursive DNS queries to those servers. This is similar
to the use of forwarders in a caching name server. If no
<code class="option">nameserver</code> entries are present, or if
forwarding fails, <span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span> resolves the
queries autonomously starting at the root name servers, using
a built-in list of root server hints.

Use <em class="replaceable"><code>config-file</code></em> as the

</p></dd>
<dt><span class="term">-d <em class="replaceable"><code>debug-level</code></em></span></dt>
<dd><p>
Set the daemon's debug level to <em class="replaceable"><code>debug-level</code></em>.
Debugging traces from <span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span> become
more verbose as the debug level increases.
</p></dd>
<dt><span class="term">-f</span></dt>
<dd><p>
Run the server in the foreground (i.e. do not daemonize).
</p></dd>
<dt><span class="term">-g</span></dt>
<dd><p>
Run the server in the foreground and force all logging
to <code class="filename">stderr</code>.
</p></dd>
<dt><span class="term">-i <em class="replaceable"><code>pid-file</code></em></span></dt>
<dd><p>
Use <em class="replaceable"><code>pid-file</code></em> as the

<code class="filename">/var/run/lwresd/lwresd.pid</code>.
</p></dd>
<dt><span class="term">-m <em class="replaceable"><code>flag</code></em></span></dt>
<dd><p>
Turn on memory usage debugging flags. Possible flags are
<em class="replaceable"><code>usage</code></em>,
<em class="replaceable"><code>trace</code></em>,
<em class="replaceable"><code>record</code></em>,
<em class="replaceable"><code>size</code></em>, and
<em class="replaceable"><code>mctx</code></em>.
These correspond to the ISC_MEM_DEBUGXXXX flags described in
<code class="filename">&lt;isc/mem.h&gt;</code>.
</p></dd>
<dt><span class="term">-n <em class="replaceable"><code>#cpus</code></em></span></dt>
<dd><p>
Create <em class="replaceable"><code>#cpus</code></em> worker threads
to take advantage of multiple CPUs. If not specified,
<span><strong class="command">lwresd</strong></span> will try to determine the
number of CPUs present and create one thread per CPU.
If it is unable to determine the number of CPUs, a
single worker thread will be created.
</p></dd>
<dt><span class="term">-P <em class="replaceable"><code>port</code></em></span></dt>

Listen for lightweight resolver queries on port
<em class="replaceable"><code>port</code></em>. If
not specified, the default is port 921.

<dt><span class="term">-p <em class="replaceable"><code>port</code></em></span></dt>
<dd><p>
Send DNS lookups to port <em class="replaceable"><code>port</code></em>. If not
specified, the default is port 53. This provides a
way of testing the lightweight resolver daemon with a
name server that listens for queries on a non-standard
port number.

and may be removed or changed in a future release.

<h3 class="title">Warning</h3>
<p>
This option should be used in conjunction with the
<code class="option">-u</code> option, as chrooting a process
running as root doesn't enhance security on most
systems; the way <code class="function">chroot(2)</code> is
defined allows a process with root privileges to
escape a chroot jail.
