DNS User Experience Monitor

This component monitor tests a DNS server's ability to respond to a record query, compares the query response against a list of IP addresses, and measures the response time. The component monitor passes if the DNS response matches the expected IP addresses.

The DNS Monitor measures the time it takes the DNS “get" for the record query referenced in the component monitor to load. This response time is measured in milliseconds.
