Monitoring NS records
Message from firstname.lastname@example.org
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
We are looking for best practice to monitor our NS records to make sure they are propagating properly across the internet.
I’ve setup check_dnsext (http://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Internet-Domains-and-WHOIS/check_dnsext/details) as part of our Icinga installation and it seems to be working very well.
We are polling public DNS servers (Google, UltraDNS, GTEI.net) for our NS records. We tried OpenDNS but they were not giving back proper results.
Does anyone else do this or have a better way?
