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.
