DNS Server Monitoring Tools

DNS is a protocol within the set of standards for how computers exchange data on the Internet and on many private networks, known as the TCP/IP protocol suite. Our DNS integration ensures your DNS server is using its resources to resolve the domain name into the IP address for the appropriate Web server.

What You Can Monitor

Opsview is able to provide valuable service checks to make sure your DNS is up and running. Our service checks will provide a status on whether your DNS zone or DNS record is active. Also, Opsview can check and make sure your DNS is not on the blacklist.

Service Checks
