I have found a rule to monitor a DNS server in general, but is there also a 
rule format to have monit check if a DNS server does return a valid reply?

Tonight, our DNS servers refused to load our master zone file (because of an 
error) and so the DNS server keeps running but does not reply to a query about 
our master domain. Monit thought it was up and running but it was useless.

Is there a way to monitor if DNS server XYZ does reply to a specific query 
with a specific reply. Would be great if this is possible. In the docs, there 
is no such example.


Wipe Info uses hexadecimal values to wipe files. This provides more
security than wiping with decimal values.
