The Dig Monitor ZenPack monitors the response time of DNS lookups.
To collect data, this ZenPack uses the check_dig Nagios plugin, which in turn uses the dig command.
This ZenPack is part of Zenoss Core. Open Source users receive community support for this ZenPack via our online forums. Enterprise support for this ZenPack is provided to Zenoss customers with an active subscription.
