Short description

dnsdist should allow specification of QCLASS for health-check queries.


I'm trying to verify connectivity to downstream servers in a way that differentiates traffic originating within dnsdist from traffic received by it, so that I can maintain awareness of multiple dnsdist agents from the other side.


newServer should include a checkClass=STRING parameter defining the QCLASS to use for health-check queries, completing the tuple along with the preexisting checkName (QNAME) and checkType (QTYPE).
