Simple DNS Resolver

Resolve a DNS hostname to IP address


Resolves a DNS hostname against a specific nameserver.

Alerts can be sent on timeout or resolve failure.


  • Resolved: 1 on success, 0 on failure
  • Address: Integer representation of the first resolved IP address. If multiple IPs are returned for the hostname this value will likely change often. To convert the integer to dotted IP notation in ruby: ‘ruby -r ipaddr -e ’, Socket::AF_INET)’
