The DNS Statistics service uses BIND statistics to provide insights into the health of the views and zones configured on a DNS/DHCP Server. You can use this information to analyze DNS configuration and processing information to identify any anomalies or misconfiguration in your DNS environment.
When enabled, DNS statistics information is collected by the DNS/DHCP Server based on the configured parameters and sent to a configured destination. You can choose to send the information to a Splunk™ server or HTTP/S endpoint, such as a data lake.
- You can only enable this service on DNS/DHCP Server v9.4.0 or greater.
- DNS Statistics service listens on port 8053 locally.
