DNS User Experience

Assign this SAM application monitor template to a node to test the ability of a DNS server to respond to a record query, and measure its responsiveness. It includes a single component monitor: the DNS User Experience monitor.





DNS User Experience Monitor

This component monitor tests a DNS server's ability to respond to a record query, compares the query response against a list of IP addresses, and measures the response time. The component monitor passes if the DNS response matches the expected IP addresses. It also measures the time it takes the DNS “get" for the record query referenced in the component monitor to load, in milliseconds (ms).
