Thanks, I was afraid I was missing something. I could not find much on 
them Googling. The named_stats.txt file contents seem obvious and while 
there is a "rndc dumpdb" I don't see a corresponding "rndc loaddb"? So 
there seems to be no way to use the cache dump snapshot for a backup 
purpose. Therefore, what purpose does the cache_dump.db file serve?
