dns_compare.py – testing DNS servers

Sometimes it might be nice to be able to test a DNS server’s output, such as with a continuous monitoring system, or as a validation tool when migrating to a different DNS server (or service.)

$ dns_compare.py -z example.com --file example.com.zone --server 10.1.1.1
....X...X..done

Matches:      9
