Even more importantly than all of those things, looking at the traffic
passed on one or all interfaces does not show us how the application
(NSD in this case of course) interpreted the requests and responded to
Query logging that could be toggled on and off at runtime with some sort
of external signal would be quite valuable for all kinds of diagnostic
use. Logging of responses would also be useful.
It would be very nice to have such logging implemented in an efficient
and non-intrusive way, but I think if the control test is done carefully
enough that when off it had negligible impact then even including
logging within performance critical sections would be quite useful for
