DNS Analytics allow you to see your domains' query activity as raw data logs or in visual forms such as: line and bar charts, interactive maps, and filterable tables.
Get a quick overview of recent query activity for all domains in the account.
When you first log into DNS Analytics, you will see a bar chart of the daily query counts for the current billing cycle. These query counts include all the domains associated with your account.
You can dig deeper into this data in the Queries by Domain table, where you can see the query counts for each domain over a set period of time.
Compare activity between domains in the stacked bar chart below the table. In the table, select the checkbox next to the domains you want to compare. An interactive chart will be generated below the table.
This is a great way to quickly see which domains are receiving the most traffic and identify any deviations from normal traffic patterns.
Click on a domain in the Queries by Domain table to access more granular data for that specific domain.
You will first see a quick overview of recent query activity for that domain over the current billing cycle. The time-series displays total query counts at 30 minute intervals.
Below, you will see an interactive map that displays the query counts for each location represented as circles that grow/shrink relative to the query counts in other locations. Each location is a point of presence (PoP) in the DNS Made Easy network. Hover over the circle to see the total queries for that location.
Compare queries at each location by selecting the checkbox next to the location name in the table. This will filter the Queries by Location time-series at the bottom of the page to only show those locations.
The Queries by Location time-series shows query counts at each location at 30 minute intervals over a definable time range. Small business members can go back as far as 45 days and Corporate members can go to 62 days. Hover over the different time-series to see query counts for each 30 minute period.
Click the icon next to the desired location in the Queries by Location table to open query logging.
This feature allows you to see your domain's live query traffic through one of our points of presence for a minute long period. Watch queries in real time on an interactive map or in raw tabular form. Raw query data can be filtered by:
Query logs can be saved and reuploaded later for historical comparison.
RTS (Real-Time Stats) is the first of it's kind in the industry, offering unprecedented visibility into DNS record usage. The DNS Analytics platform shows you who is querying your domains, but our RTS tool shows you how your DNS resources are being used.
We recommend using RTS as a tool to review your query usage. If you keep going over your query quota, you can use RTS to identify which records are being used the most and even pinpoint system misconfigurations.
You can use RTS to filter your domain's query traffic by:
