Current setting (since the beginning of blackbox-exporter ;-) )

...
  - job_name: 'blackbox-outer-world'
    metrics_path: /probe
    params:
      module: [http_2xx]
    static_configs:
    - targets:
      - https://devuan.org
...

According to documentation of blackbox-exporter (https://github.com/prometheus/blackbox_exporter/blob/master/CONFIGURATION.md):
It uses IPv6 by default.
I can enhance the test with forcing IPv4
And I also can change form devuan to heise.de

adding heise additionally to devuan is probably a good idea - heise is
certainly reachable by v6 and v4, so we can test both with it

Sorry, forgot to update the ticket...

The blackbox exporter now checks devuan.org and heise.de via http one time via v4 and one time via v6.

The checks are added to the blackbox grafana dashboard.
