       gdnsd-plugin-static - gdnsd static plugin


       Example static resources config for resolution:

         plugins => {
           static => {
             foo =>
             bar => 2001:db8::1
             baz =>

       Example static service_types config for monitoring:

         service_types => {
           my_static_mon => {
             plugin => static,
             ttl => 123,
             state => UP,
             # ... other generic service_type params (ignored)

       Zonefile RRs using static plugin resolution

         foo 300 DYNA static!foo
         bar 300 DYNC static!bar
         baz 300 DYNC static!baz


       gdnsd-plugin-static is a combined monitoring and resolution plugin that
       returns static data.  It is generally useless in real scenarios, and
       mostly serves only as an example/test plugin.

       For resolution, the configuration is a simple key/value hash where the
       keys are resource names and the values can be a single IP address (v4
       or v6) or a domainname.  The domainname form can only be used with
       "DYNC", while the address form can be used with either "DYNA" or

       For monitoring configuration as a service_type, the only two useful
       parameters are "ttl" and "state", which set a fixed TTL and state for
       this static monitor result.  The other standard monitoring parameters
       (e.g. interval, timeout) are ignored, as static sets its states once at
       startup and never runs again.
