Reporting and data intelligence

GSLB.me provides full DNS visibility on your services: the powerful data intelligence engine collects real-time data on all DNS queries and replies for your geohosts.

The data collection system automatically gathers real-time key performance and usage indicators with no configuration required. All collected data can be displayed through an unlimited number of graphs that can be created on a per-geohost basis.

GSLB.me reporting and data intelligence feature allows you to generate an arbitrary number of fully customizable graphs to display the time distribution of your DNS resolution for your geohosts:

  • DNS requests:
    DNS visibility: Graph style and appearance settings

    Fully customizable graphs look & feel

    • Overall
    • Per-country
    • Per-ASN (Autonomous System)
    • Per-ISP
  • DNS responses:
    • Per-target
    • Per-country
    • Including aggregated data such as minimum/maximum/average
  • Data summarization (average) over a customizable amount of time
  • Fully customizable look&feel
  • All graphs are accessible via GSLB.me REST APIs

Graphs are fully customizable: their look and feel can be changed and tailored to your needs.

 

Data series can be selected to track your DNS services and how GSLB.me is responding to queries, requests can be tracked and displayed even on a per-country basis, and data can be summarized based on average values.

The look and feel and the amount and type of displayed information can be defined. DNS visibility provides all the tools needed to:

  • understand how geohosts are working
  • keep track of how the active smart DNS algorithm is handling requests
  • carry on extensive trend analysis and capacity planning for services that are balanced across multiple geographical regions
  • easily spot anomalies and problems
