Hi all,

We have a lot of following entries in our syslog, produced each 1-2 seconds:

Nov  5 16:28:04 named[12484]: [ID 866145 daemon.debug] Nov 05 16:28:04.611general: debug 1: message has 1 byte(s) of trailing garbage
Nov  5 16:28:10 named[12484]: [ID 866145 daemon.debug] Nov 05 16:28:10.191general: debug 1: message has 1 byte(s) of trailing garbage
Nov  5 16:28:11 named[12484]: [ID 866145 daemon.debug] Nov 05 16:28:11.197general: debug 1: message has 1 byte(s) of trailing garbage

Any body can tell me why this ocurre ?

It only ocurre on the primary dns server.

    It does no harm, just someone sent strange request, specify less logging for bind to get rid of it, or run traffic dumper to get actual requests
