What is DNS?
DNS (acronym for Domain Name Resolution) is a hierarchical decentralized naming system for services or other resources connected to the Internet or a private network. It translates memorized domain names to numerical IP addresses needed for locating and identifying computer services and devices with the underlying network protocols.
Besides address resolution mechanisms, DNS operations provide other features such as MX records and mail transfer agents...
This package monitors DNS service Availability and Response Time.
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent in order to monitor availability and performance of DNS services. You can also test the resolution of a specific DNS entry.
The statistics gathered in this way include:
- Delay to get a response
- Number of retries needed before getting the response
- Response code given by the server
- Response given by the server in an understandable text format
