Aug 18 17:13:01 gir nsd[2744]: could not read ixfr store info: file format error
Aug 18 17:13:01 gir nsd[2744]: error processing diff file
Aug 18 17:13:01 gir nsd[2744]: unable to load the diff file: /var/nsd/ixfr.db
Aug 18 17:13:01 gir nsd[26056]: Reload process 2744 failed with status 256, continuing with old database

I had a server crash, brought it back up, and ran into these problems.
Hand deleting, a restart and rebuild, fixed it.

Would it make sense for nsd to totally rebuild the diff file (and
any other 'temporary' files) in such a case?

I am running nsd 3.2.2 on OpenBSD.

I cannot conceive that anybody will require multiplications at the rate
of 40,000 or even 4,000 per hour ...
