    Thanks for the suggestion, I’ve just merged this with another one about DNS check. This is something we’re thinking about but is not planned yet.

    In the meantime what you made is a great workaround, if other users are interested I encourage them to leave a comment here with a way to contact them so you may give them the URL of your service if you want.

    Sorry - it's not the tinydns package but the djbdns package. Just to avoid confusion.

    The current monitoring seems to use resolvers with "hot" caches - hot means they are populated already by the periodic checks.
    For many of ay checks this leads to a DNS resolution time of 0.

    What would be good is a check which does the resolution from the start (root-servers) and implements the whole resolution process itself.

    These kind of checks are resource intensive so they should be limited to every 5 minutes or so.

    Additionally the whole dns resolution paths could be investigated like dnstrace by D.J. Bernstein does (dnstrace/dnstracesort are part of the tinydns package).

    This doesn't fit really good into updown.io - maybe it would be good as a separate service.

    At least an additional "readonly" user for the status pages would be good.
