DNS Monitoring Performance Test

Monitor Your DNS servers, resolvers and providers.

Why is DNS Monitoring Important?

DNS is a foundational service without which users would be unable to find or connect to your service. Most businesses rely on external DNS providers to report on performance and DNS integrity but have little insight into DNS service, reachability, performance and real-time DNS record security.

ThousandEyes sheds a new light on the performance of your DNS infrastructure, from caching servers to external providers. We monitor and test the performance of DNS servers, resolvers and records in your network and those of your providers across the DNS hierarchy.

See DNS performance side-by-side with routing, path tracing and app availability that help you collect data and test for DNS problems such as server performance, caching errors, record misconfigurations and cache poisoning.

With ThousandEyes, DNS monitoring is made simple. You can monitor on-premises, hosted or third-party DNS servers to check availability, resolution speed and record mappings. You can also trace the entire DNS hierarchy for a record, from top-level domain servers to the authoritative server and understand if DNS infrastructure outside of your control is causing an outage or performance degradation.

ThousandEyes will help you perform DNS testing and DNS server troubleshooting to:
  • Understand the connectivity to authoritative servers with easy auto-discovery, routing, path tracing and availability metrics.
  • Measure the availability, responsiveness and record accuracy of your local DNS resolvers, across all office and data center locations.
  • Easily customize, configure and export alerts on DNS availability, record mappings and DNSSEC.
  • Detect DNS cache poisoning in your network or in remote networks by alerting on record mappings.
  • Verify the DNSSEC keychain from the bottom up.
