pdns_control - Control the pDNS nameserver
pdns_control is used to send commands to a running pDNS nameserver.
Show the content of the cache
Adds a domain to the notification list, causing PDNS to send out
notifications to the nameservers of a domain. Can be used if a
slave missed previous notifications or is generally hard of
notify-host <domain> <host>
Same as above but with operator specified IP address as
destination, to be used if you know better than PowerDNS.
cycle Restart the nameserver so it reloads its configuration.
ping Check if the server is alive.
Purge entries from the packet cache. If the record name ends
with a dollar ($) all entries that end with that name are
removed. If no record is specified the entire cache is purged.
Instructs backends that new domains may have appeared in the
database, or, in the case of the Bind backend, in named.conf.
Retrieve a slave domain from its master. Done nearly immediatly.

only the query-logging can be set.
