    Description

      I have a monitoring solution where I would like to verify that HOST.IP and HOST.DNS map correctly.

      I assumed that using the following check would work

      "net.dns.record[8.8.8.8,1.2.3.4,PTR]"
      

      The end result is an unclear zabbix message

      ZBX_NOTSUPPORTED: Cannot perform DNS query.
      

      I realize that PTR is a special record and I would need to query like this

      "net.dns.record[8.8.8.8,4.3.2.1.in-addr.arpa,PTR]"
      

      Could there be an option to put in an option for "reverse" so that dummies like me can use the HOST.IP macro to do a reverse lookup?

      something like this

      "net.dns.record[8.8.8.8,1.2.3.4,reverse]"
