DNS-STATS Visualizer project homepage

The DNS-STATS Visualizer is a framework for a system which can:

  • Consume DNS traffic data files recorded in Compacted-DNS (C-DNS, RFC8618) format from nameservers. (Files in C-DNS format can be generated by DNS-STATS compactor.)

  • Populate a ClickHouse database with per query/response level data (and additionally aggregate data at a chosen time interval)

  • Produce DSC-like statistics graphs of the recorded traffic in Grafana (see Screenshots).

RSSAC reports can also be made available via the link at the foot of the main Grafana dashboard.

See About for more details.


DNS-STATS Visualizer is an open source project licensed under the Mozilla Public License v2.0.
