DNS Monitoring is observing and analyzing the DNS infrastructure's operational status, health, and performance. This involves keeping track of DNS server availability, response time, and resource utilization, among other factors.
DNS Monitoring is an active measure to ensure the smooth functioning of the internet within an organization. It aids in proactively identifying and mitigating potential issues, thereby preventing service disruptions, minimizing downtime, and enhancing overall operational efficiency. Furthermore, DNS Monitoring also plays a critical role in cybersecurity, helping detect unusual traffic patterns or requests that may indicate a potential security threat.
Pinger Man can monitor public DNS servers and query them for the records you want to monitor. You can query for A, AAAA, CNAME, DNSKEY, DS, MX, NS, PTR, SOA, SRV, and TXT records.
Pinger Man ensures that the records are valid and that the values match with the ones you are expecting. Alerts are sent when the DNS lookup fails or when the values change.
