DNS Alerts - How To :


I am looking the best way to monitor and be alerted of any issue with DNS resolution.
I found in DNS properties a "monitoring" tab where I can test queries against/recursive for DNS servers.

this monitoring is what I am looking for, the question now is, How can get these "results" in order to send alerts via email, and be alerted if DNS resolution doenst work.

or maybe there is another way to have this kind of failures and being informed.

thanks for your help.

PS: I am not looking to monitor DNS services. I want to know if resolution is working or not. (NSLOOKUP)
