I don't quite understand BIND9's statistics file named.stats. Couple of things:

1.) +++ Statistics Dump +++ (1453303803) - what does it mean? Is it when the file was created? And One and half billion - are those seconds counting from 1970? Is there a more human-friendly way to see it?

2.) Below that we've got some statistics. But it's totally unclear to me what's the starting point? Is it from the first installation of BIND9 on my particular system and its first run OR maybe from certain point in the past OR perhaps from the time of last restart?


The statistics dump begins with the line +++ Statistics Dump +++ (973798949), where the number in parentheses is a standard Unix-style timestamp, measured as seconds since January 1, 1970.
