FQDN DNS resolution monitoring



How could I implement the monitoring of a FQDN resolution? I need to understand when the resolution IP of a particular FQDN change. Could this be done in PRTG in some way (also indirect monitoring?) Consider that the FQDN doesn't answer to PINGs. Many thanks, Mario

Hello Mario,

By the use of a DNS Sensor it is possible to check if the ip address change.
