Utility of Windows® DNS Lookup
Get to know more about utility of DNS Lookup in Windows computer
In most DNS lookups in Windows, clients typically perform forward lookups, which is a search based on the DNS name of another computer as stored in an address resource record. This type of query expects an IP address as the resource data for answered response. Whenever you browse websites or send an e-mail message, a domain name is used to send or receive information. Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), such as http://www.google.com, and e-mail addresses like email@example.com are easy for users to remember but are almost useless to computers. The Domain Name Service (DNS) is used to map the relationships between a human-readable hostname and the IP addresses associated with that hostname. DNS may also be used in reverse mapping an IP address to a hostname. All the tasks are multithreaded. The search results are easily logged in the DNS forward Lookup. There are DNS tools that help in managing, monitoring, administrating and troubleshooting the DNS.
The following are ways to access and tips to avoid issues that occur in Windows DNS Lookup:
- DNS Manager
- Performance Monitoring Utilities
- Tips to Avoid Issues
Using various tools you can access DNS in a Windows computer. The primary tool that you use to monitor is the DNS Manager that performs various tasks. They perform maintenance, monitoring and managing on the server and also help in accessing information that is provided by DNS. We can access the information and perform adding, removing and updating process.
Performance Monitoring Utilities
You can do performance monitoring for DNS servers using additional service-specific counters that measure DNS server performance. For accessing DNS lookup it is necessary that its performance should be monitored so that accessing can be easier. These counters are accessible through System Monitor, which is provided in the Performance snap-in. When you use System Monitor, you can create charts and graphs of server performance trends over time for any of your DNS servers. These can be further studied and analyzed to determine if additional server tuning is needed.
There are chances that access to DNS is not possible which may have been caused due to several issues. These issues can be solved by different methods. If the DNS Server is not responding to clients it may be due to network failure for which you need to verify the network connection. You need to check the client hardware like cables and network adaptors so that network failure does not occur.
