  • Service Type is dns.
  • Up to version 8.4.10G inclusive, the builtin dns monitor requires the node's Name/IP Address setting to hold the node's fully qualified domain name. NMIS then requests DNS info for this FQDN from the node that is marked for dns service monitoring. The Service Name is ignored.
  • After version 8.4.10G, you have to specify what is to be looked up must specify the DNS query target as the Service Name. This can be either an IP address or a fully qualified domain name (host or domain). Again it is the node marked for dns monitoring that is asked for DNS info, but you've got control over what is requested.
