dnsdist on Docker
dnsdist is a highly DNS-, DoS- and abuse-aware loadbalancer. Its goal in life is to route traffic to the best server, delivering top performance to legitimate users while shunting or blocking abusive traffic.
- The Docker image is available at sukiyaki/dnsdist
- The GitHub repository is available at sukiyaki/dnsdist
Create a named container 'dnsdist'.
dnsdist starts and listens on ports 53 for dns in the container.
To map it to the host's ports, use the following command to create and start the container instead:
docker run -t --name dnsdist -p 53:53/tcp -p 53:53/udp -t sukiyaki/dnsdist
dnsdist stores its config
/etc/dnsdist/ in the container.
If you wish to configure it, it is a good idea to set up a volume mapping for these path. For example:
docker run -t \ --name dnsdist \ -v /data/dnsdist/:/etc/dnsdist/ \ -p 53:53/udp \ sukiyaki/dnsdist
