Question DNS monitoring by Nagios XI


Hi guys,
As far as i know, i need to install a wizard (available on Nagios website) to monitor DNS and Mail (any) server. I also need to install a separate wizard to monitor Solaris system.

But, I want to monitor DNS server configured on Solaris system. How can I do that ?

Any comments are appreciated.
Thanks

a wizard??? I doubt it.

What do you actually want to "monitor" about it. That's a very dangerous word to use... that can be a tiny thing (ping it) or a very large thing (evaluate incoming requests, zone transfers etc.)

Fair enough. But what do you want to monitor?

You should just be able to use the built in check_dns plugin. It should be in your plugins directory.

I know the configuration and working of DNS. Now I am trying to monitor these servers for my own learning.
I dont have any specific requirements regarding DNS monitoring.
I want to monitor almost everything which is possible without having any big trouble.
As you said I'd wanna monitor tiny thing (ping) or a very large thing (evaluate incoming requests, zone transfers etc.)

1 more thing,
we are distracting from main requirement.
How could I monitor "DNS on a Solaris" system after I know I need two separate wizards them?
