 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      sig_named - send signals to the domain name server

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/bin/sig_named [kill | restart]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

      /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    [Toc]    [Back]
      sig_named recognizes the following command-line arguments:

           kill           Kill the name server process.

           restart        Signal the name server to reload its database.

      database, to set debug levels and to obtain named statistics. The rndc
      utility can be used instead.  See rndc(1) for more details on its
      usage and options.
