There are also other collection and reporting tools "out there",  
including DSC (DNS Stats Collector), dns2db, etc. - a Google on any of  
those terms should send you down the right path. I have used both, in  
addition to home-rolled tools based around tcpdump, wireshark/tshark,  
dnsdump, DNScap, etc. Many options out there...
