Usage Statistics of Public Resolvers Online

As a result of our in-house monitoring of our public resolvers, we started to publish usage statistics of our public resolvers. So far, the statistics are updated daily, shortly after midnight UTC.

The statistics come in handy in multiple ways. On the one hand, it is a great tool to continously have a feeling on the growth or declide of our usage. On the other hand, it gives us a clear indication on the effect of new configurations and counter measures.

To give a short example: DNS is often used as a reflector amplifier for DDoS attacks. So is it the case with our infrastucture. Yet, as an operator public resolvers, one has the obligation to reduce the abuse of one’s own infrastructure. Thus, we continously think of new ways to limit abuse of our infrastructure while simultaneously keeping our resolvers open.
