Network Availability Monitoring in Dynatrace to Monitor DNS

Mohangurrampati

Hi,

 

We have DNS servers in the onprem Data Center, and our VMs are in the Azure cloud. We have a domain controller in Azure that connects to DNS, and the domain controller will do replications to Azure VMs for name resolution. If the DNS server goes down, all our applications will be down, so we now want to monitor the DNS server in Dynatrace closely. Can someone provide any steps to onboard DNS servers in Dynatrace and start to monitor

 

Thanks

@Mohangurrampati, Easiest way is to install OneAgent, and then monitor the OS service corresponding to the DNS process.

Also, you get details of what is happening from DNS clients where you have OneAgent installed. You can also trigger metrics from those systems, if you want.

BTW, removed the file you uploaded, as it contained info that probably is better not publicly visible.
