Once monitoring services are enabled, you can view the server status reported by the monitoring service in the Servers section of the configuration Servers tab and in the General section of a server’s Details tab.

Tip: You can also set monitoring options when adding or editing a server. For more information, refer to Adding DNS/DHCP Servers to Address Manager.

To view server status:

  4. Click on a server to view its Details tab. The General section also indicates the server status:
    Server status is indicated with these icons:

When DNS/DHCP Server Monitoring is enabled, the Metrics tab becomes available on the server information pages. On the Metrics tab, you can review graphs of DNS/DHCP Server performance statistics.
