This document describes a data representation for collections of DNS
messages.  The format is designed for efficient storage and
transmission of large packet captures of DNS traffic; it attempts to
minimize the size of such packet capture files but retain the full
DNS message contents along with the most useful transport metadata.
It is intended to assist with the development of DNS traffic-
monitoring applications.
