By default, RESOLVER_QUERY_DROPPED and RESOLVER_QUERY_REJECTED are INFO level. This can be very noisy. For example, on one abused system, I am getting multiple each second using the same IP and port.

Let's move this from INFO to some DEBUG level.

As part of this ticket, please also document how to log just these specific details when desired. (If that is not possible, please open a new ticket.)

BIND 9 seems to log it at the log level:

                        ns_client_log(client, DNS_LOGCATEGORY_SECURITY,
                                      NS_LOGMODULE_QUERY, ISC_LOG_INFO,
                                      "%s denied", msg);

                        ns_client_log(client, DNS_LOGCATEGORY_SECURITY,
                                      NS_LOGMODULE_QUERY, ISC_LOG_INFO,
                                      "query-on denied");

and allow the user to suppress it via the category configuration.

Not necessarily to say we should definitely do the same, but it seems
to suggest that what we should do doesn't seem to be so obvious.

Replying to jinmei:

BIND 9 seems to log it at the log level:

I meant "at the info level".

It may make more sense to introduce a rate limit for logging, as discussed at the last BIND face to face meeting.
