Summary     : Displays information about DNS traffic on your network
Description :
dnstop is a libpcap application (ala tcpdump) that displays various
tables of DNS traffic on your network.

To help find especially undesirable DNS queries, dnstop provides a
number of filters.

tcpdump savefile.

Changelog from previous version:

2011/05/02 Duane Wessels

    Anand Buddhev pointed out that LDFLAGS= is missing from Makefile.in.
    Also updated known_tlds.h.

2011/01/27 Duane Wessels

    Fixed some portability bugs (OpenBSD, gmake 3.82) and other
    minor bugs.

    Added a feature (-n option) to restrict counting to a given
    query name.

2011/01/05 Duane Wessels

    Found a fixed a few problems after spending some quality time
    looking at the code.

    1) Hash table performance was terrible and has been improved.
       The hash table size is now configurable via command line

    2) Some things were double-counted when both -Q and -R were

    3) Added cumulative percentage totals to the tables

    4) Added -X option to disable the source+queryname tables, which
       could consume a lot of memory.

    5) Imported "inX_addr" mini-library for storing IPv4/IPv6

2010/12/27 Duane Wessels

    Fixed a bug where if stdout was a TTY but stdin was not a TTY,
    then dnstop would enter a loop on keyboard input and consume
    100% CPU.  Now it checks that stdin is a TTY as well.
