How does DNS overview/insights work?

Hi Al,

How can I see DNS traffic being displayed at DNS overview/insights dashboard?

Hi Matthews.

This DNS Dashboard widget is populated when Zscaler inspects DNS traffic from a known location arriving or beingg routed through a Zscaler ZEN.

The location could be one of the following:

  • A road warrior user with Zscaler App and Tunnel 2.0 configured
  • A Registered IP Address location
  • A IPsec or GRE location

Either the DNS traffic is tunneled through a Zscaler ZEN or you are using the Zscaler ZEN as your DNS host.
