The HINFO record

The HINFO (host information) record contains the CPU and operating system descriptions of a particular host.

Example

Here, we query for HINFO records of the domain hinfo-example.lookup.dog. The result is two strings, the first containing the CPU field, and the second containing the OS field.

$ dog HINFO hinfo-example.lookup.dog
HINFO hinfo-example.lookup.dog. 1h00m00s   "some-kinda-cpu" "some-kinda-os"
