There are two options for using DNS Shotgun. You can either use a pre-built docker image, or install the dependencies, compile the dnssim module and use the scripts from the repository directly.
Pre-built image can be obtained from CZ.NIC DNS Shotgun Registry.
$ docker pull registry.nic.cz/knot/shotgun:v20210714
Alternately, you can build the image yourself from Dockerfile in the repository.

Using scripts from sources
You can use the toolchain scripts directly from the git repository. You need to ensure you have the required dependencies installed and the compile and install the dnssim module. Also make sure to check out some tagged version, as the development happens in master branch.
$ git clone https://gitlab.nic.cz/knot/shotgun.git $ git checkout v20210714 $ cd shotgun/replay/dnssim $ ./autogen.sh $ ./configure $ make $ make install
When using the scripts directly, the following dependencies are needed.
If you only wish to process shotgun JSON output (e.g. plot charts), then dnsjit and compiling the dnssim module isn't required.
