Management of name servers for the Domain Name System (DNS) has
traditionally been done using vendor-specific monitoring,
configuration, and control methods.  Although some service monitoring
platforms can test the functionality of the DNS itself, there is not
an interoperable way to manage (monitor, control, and configure) the
internal aspects of a name server itself.

This document discusses the requirements of a management system for
name servers and can be used as a shopping list of needed features
for such a system.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Domain Name System Operations Working Group of the IETF.
