We use BlueCat BDDS appliances for both DNS and DHCP and I was wondering if anyone has used Solarwinds to monitor the number of DNS queries per second or if it is even possible. The queries per second counter is usually pretty level but now and then it spikes or increases and that has lead to finding either configuration issues on servers or potentially finding DOS attacks.
Start your Mib Browser at around 220.127.116.11.4.1.13315
LOTS of stuff to monitor. I have gauges for successful/failed queries, referrals, transfers, etc...
