ABOUT

dns-monitor is a project aimed at providing statistics on dns usage

UPDATE

The WebUI has been removed from dns-monitor. I've started a new project with a new UI here:

https://github.com/reyjrar/DreamCatcher

The database of the new project is compatible with the dns-monitor database, so transitioning will be simple.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Perl (5.10.1 or later)
  • libpcap (1.1.1 recommended)
  • PostgreSQL (8.3 or later)
    • PL/PgSQL
    • ltree plugin

INSTALL

# Configure the Perl Environment
perl Makefile.PL

# Configure the Application
cp dns_monitor.yml.default dns_monitor.yml

# Deploy the Database
./devel/deploy_database_schema.pl

# Run the Sniffer
./bin/dnsmon_sniffer.pl

# Run the analyzer
./bin/dnsmon_analyzer.pl

    # Or alternatively:
    ./devel/monit_config.pl

# Install the ./bin/dnsmon_maintenance.pl into the server's crontab
#  once every 2 hours is more than enough

UPGRADE

# If you installed the first release, you'll need to apply the schema updates:
./devel/deploy_database_schema.pl upgrade 20121028

CONFIGURATION

dns_monitor.yml is YAML, no, it's not JSON. Don't mix tabs and spaces, you will regret it.
