Resolver related data types.


Configuration for resolver

data ResolvConf #

Type for resolver configuration. Use defaultResolvConf to create a new value.

An example to use Google's public DNS cache instead of resolv.conf:

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvInfo = RCHostName "" }

An example to use multiple Google's public DNS cache concurrently:

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvInfo = RCHostNames ["",""], resolvConcurrent = True }

An example to disable EDNS:

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvQueryControls = ednsEnabled FlagClear }

An example to enable query result caching:

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvCache = Just defaultCacheConf }

An example to disable requesting recursive service.

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvQueryControls = rdFlag FlagClear }

An example to set the AD bit in all queries by default.

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvQueryControls = adFlag FlagSet }

An example to set the both the AD and CD bits in all queries by default.

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvQueryControls = adFlag FlagSet <> cdFlag FlagSet }

An example with an EDNS buffer size of 1216 bytes, which is more robust with IPv6, and the DO bit set to request DNSSEC responses.

>>> let conf = defaultResolvConf { resolvQueryControls = ednsSetUdpSize (Just 1216) <> doFlag FlagSet }

Instance details

Defined in Network.DNS.Types.Resolver

defaultResolvConf :: ResolvConf #

Return a default ResolvConf:


resolvInfo :: ResolvConf -> FileOrNumericHost #

Server information.

resolvTimeout :: ResolvConf -> Int #

Timeout in micro seconds.

resolvRetry :: ResolvConf -> Int #

The number of retries including the first try.

resolvConcurrent :: ResolvConf -> Bool #

Concurrent queries if multiple DNS servers are specified.

resolvCache :: ResolvConf -> Maybe CacheConf #

Cache configuration.

resolvQueryControls :: ResolvConf -> QueryControls #

Overrides for the default flags used for queries via resolvers that use this configuration.

Specifying DNS servers

data FileOrNumericHost #

The type to specify a cache server.


RCFilePath FilePath

A path for "resolv.conf" where one or more IP addresses of DNS servers should be found on Unix. Default DNS servers are automatically detected on Windows regardless of the value of the file name.

RCHostName HostName

A numeric IP address. Warning: host names are invalid.

RCHostNames [HostName]

Numeric IP addresses. Warning: host names are invalid.

RCHostPort HostName PortNumber

A numeric IP address and port number. Warning: host names are invalid.

Configuring cache

data CacheConf #

Cache configuration for responses.

Show CacheConf 
Instance details

Defined in Network.DNS.Types.Resolver

defaultCacheConf :: CacheConf #

Default cache configuration.

>>> defaultCacheConf
CacheConf {maximumTTL = 300, pruningDelay = 10}

maximumTTL :: CacheConf -> TTL #

If RR's TTL is higher than this value, this value is used instead.

pruningDelay :: CacheConf -> Int #

Cache pruning interval in seconds.

Intermediate data type for resolver

data ResolvSeed #

Intermediate abstract data type for resolvers. IP address information of DNS servers is generated according to resolvInfo internally. This value can be safely reused for withResolver.

The naming is confusing for historical reasons.

makeResolvSeed :: ResolvConf -> IO ResolvSeed Source #

Make a ResolvSeed from a ResolvConf.


>>> rs <- makeResolvSeed defaultResolvConf

Type and function for resolver

data Resolver #

Abstract data type of DNS Resolver. This includes newly seeded identifier generators for all specified DNS servers and a cache database.

withResolver :: ResolvSeed -> (Resolver -> IO a) -> IO a Source #

Giving a thread-safe Resolver to the function of the second argument.

withResolvers :: [ResolvSeed] -> ([Resolver] -> IO a) -> IO a Source #

Deprecated: Use withResolver with resolvConcurrent set to True

Giving thread-safe Resolvers to the function of the second argument. For each Resolver, multiple lookups must be done sequentially. Resolvers can be used concurrently.
