NAME

gdnsd-plugin-null - gdnsd null plugin

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

Example null service_types config:



  service_types => {
    my_null_mon => {
      plugin => null,
      # ... other generic service_type params
    }
  }



Zonefile RRs using null resolution



  foo 300 DYNA null
  bar 300 DYNC null!whatever



DESCRIPTION

gdnsd-plugin-null exists mostly as an example of the minimum possible plugin of both types. It is simultaneously both a monitoring plugin and a resolution plugin.

When used as a resolution plugin in DNYA or DYNC RRs, it ignores any resource name provided. With DYNA it always returns the IPv4 address 0.0.0.0 and the IPv6 address ::. With DYNC it always returns a CNAME to to the domainname invalid.

When used as a monitoring plugin by defining a service_type as shown in the example above it emulates the behavior of a real monitoring plugin (updating at correct intervals, etc) but sends a DOWN result at every monitoring check interval without actually checking anything.
