Resolv is a thread-aware DNS resolver library written in Ruby. Resolv can handle multiple DNS requests concurrently without blocking the entire ruby interpreter.

See also resolv-replace.rb to replace the libc resolver with Resolv.

Resolv can look up various DNS resources using the DNS module directly.

Examples:

p Resolv.getaddress "www.ruby-lang.org"
p Resolv.getname "210.251.121.214"

Resolv::DNS.open do |dns|
  ress = dns.getresources "www.ruby-lang.org", Resolv::DNS::Resource::IN::A
  p ress.map { |r| r.address }
  ress = dns.getresources "ruby-lang.org", Resolv::DNS::Resource::IN::MX
  p ress.map { |r| [r.exchange.to_s, r.preference] }
end
