The /run directory is non-persistent. Use /var/cache/knot-resolver
as a persistent cache.

And you're good to go for most use cases! If you want to use modules or configure daemon behavior, read on.
# Used for systemd activation
KRESD_ARGS="--config=/etc/knot-resolver/kresd.conf --verbose --forks=1 /var/cache/knot-resolver"
  • --verbose by default? @tkrizek: is that intentional? That will generate really lots of logs.

  • This was/is used in the Debian package. When using systemd, messages are logged to syslog. The logs will be compressed and various file size restrictions can be set.

    However, I'm not sure how much actual disk space could this use after some time, especially if also running multiple instances...

    Does the verbose option provide any messages that could be useful during regular operation? Or is it something that's usually turned on just for debugging purposes? If it's the latter, perhaps we shouldn't turn it on by default.

  • It's only meant for debugging particular requests. Messages considered useful for normal operation are output even without --verbose.
