Overview

Package dns implements a DNS prober. It sends UDP DNS queries to a list of targets and reports statistics on queries sent, queries received, and latency experienced.

This prober uses the DNS library in /third_party/golang/dns/dns to construct, send, and receive DNS messages. Every message is sent on a different UDP port. Queries to each target are sent in parallel.
