       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 "DYNC".

       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.
