“A survey of U.S. and U.K. IT managers at midsize enterprises found that about one-third of IT staff time is consumed with server management tasks. Close to 60% of the 441 IT managers polled cited the hassle of managing servers as a challenge in their organization and another 61% found it difficult to find time to drive innovation.”

DNS Manager provides centralized management of Secure64 DNS Cache software and configurations and provides network-wide monitoring of key performance indicators. With DNS Manager the time and resources required to manage and monitor a DNS Cache network can be greatly reduced, while providing you with control and visibility into software and configuration changes.
This GUI based application can configure, manage, and monitor a set of Secure64 DNS Cache servers from one central point. In an environment consisting of many DNS servers, there are likely to be differences in configurations. Some servers may be anycasted, while others are load balanced, for example. Or servers located in different geographies may have different values for local DNS data.
DNS Manager allows you to create groups of servers and assign configurations to a group, a single, or all servers. Groups may be arranged hierarchically, to provide maximum flexibility to organize your network.
Once servers are defined and organized, configurations may be assigned to one, several, or all servers in the network. Common configuration parameters may be assigned to all servers in the network, whereas settings specific to subsets of servers may be assigned at the group level, and IP addresses and other server-specific information are assigned to each specific server.
All actions to modify configuration files or software versions are revision controlled and logged. Authorized users can rollback to previous software versions or configurations if necessary.
DNS Manager is able to monitor key performance indicators across the DNS network, including queries per second, CPU, disk and memory utilization so that you can identify bottlenecks and pending failures before they impact customers.
