Once you've configured a DNS Edge service point on a supported DNS/DHCP Server, you can view the service point health and configuration details in the service point diagnostics output.

These details can help you determine whether the service point successfully registered with the Edge cloud. If the registration fails, the diagnostics can also provide insight into the cause of failure.

To view the service point diagnostics:

  1. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  2. Under Servers, click a server name.
  3. Click the server name menu and select Service Configuration.
  4. From the Service Type drop-down menu, select Edge service point.
  5. Click to expand the Edge Service Point Status section.

    Review the output to monitor the service point status and diagnostics. If you've successfully configured the service point, "spStatus": "GOOD" shows in the first line of the output. The service point is ready to process all incoming IPv4 DNS queries and try to resolve it using its defined forwarder(s).

    Tip: Click View as Text to view the contents of the service point configuration file in a new browser page. This allows you to easily copy or save the contents as a text file.
    Tip: Alternative method of viewing the service point diagnostics output

    To view the the diagnostics output, you can also use the following API call:

    Note: The service point diagnostics output is available on any IPv4 address attached to the Service Interface (eth0).
