What is DNS Analytics?

Mlytics DNS Analytics is an interactive and easily visualizable chart that monitors real-time users’ requests to Mlytics DNS.

This is a powerful tool that provides insights into the capabilities of Mlytics DNS to handle DNS requests globally.

You can access DNS Analytics by navigating to ‘ Analytics’ > ‘DNS’.

You need to set the target site from the ‘ Operation level panel’.

For now, DNS Analytics has 1 chart: DNS Request Chart. It will be expanded in the future.

DNS Request Chart

The DNS request chart monitors Total DNS requests passing through the Mlytics DNS for a given site. 

Total DNS request consists of Global DNS request and China DNS request.

You need to purchase China DNS Acceleration Power-Up to avail China DNS feature. Go to ‘Marketplace’ > ‘DNS’ to purchase the Power-Ups.

Chart Controls

Date range: You can specify the range of the date of the DNS Analytics chart by accessing the date range on the top right of the chart.

The chart will display data for 7 days (1 week) range by default, but you can set the date range from 1 day to 30 days (1 month).

Refresh chart: You can refresh and update the chart by clicking the ‘Refresh’ icon on top of the chart.

Data presentation: You can plot data of Global and China DNS requests separately (i.e. Divide) or plot data of all DNS requests additively (i.e. Summary).
