Our presentation at DNS OARC 42 focuses on developing and operating a robust DNS monitoring system, across various environments, including traditional and cloud infrastructures. We will discuss our journey in managing a large-scale DNS monitoring setup, consisting of more than 2500 zones distributed across 500 service instances and 15 regions all over the world, each zone containing 2000 - 8000 records.
The session will present the operational strategies and challenges involved in monitoring such a complex and large-scale DNS infrastructure, with a focus on key areas like zone delegation, resolution, and query latency. Additionally, our talk will examine both public and private DNS query logging, emphasizing their role in enhancing resolution monitoring and improving overall system efficiency.
Lastly, we will explore strategies for building a robust and comprehensive DNS monitoring system, leveraging the strategic implementation of cloud platforms to create solutions that are operationally effective, scalable, and adaptable to various environments.
