OARC's TLDmon Service

OARC's TLDmon uses Nagios to monitor operational characteristics of authoritative nameservers for the Root Zone and all Top Level Domains. TLDmon checks for authoritative answers, EDNS support, lame delegations, consistent NS RR sets, open resolvers, expired RRSIGs, matching serial numbers, and TCP support. As the Domain Name System continues its evolution, it becomes increasingly important that these critical nameservers are configured correctly.

Vacancies at DNS-OARC

As part of OARC's strategic development plan, we will be hiring for a number of positions in 2014/5. These are unique opportunities for independent-minded candidates seeking to develop their experience and skills with a nonprofit organization of critical importance to the future of the Internet. This is a chance to play a key role in growing OARC as a respected, sustainable, autonomous, neutral organization.

Currently there are no open positions.
