Centos 6.5 – Monitoring Bind9 with Bindgraph.

Bindgraph is a program based on Mailgraph and offers the same basic features. It reads the dns_queries.log file and creates a .rrd file listing the number of queries per record type (A, AAA, CNAME, PTR and a few others). It then generates a graph, takes a screenshot and creates a nice HTML page with a .cgi script.

It provides quick overview of your dns traffic. Though, it is limited to the number and type of queries and does not handle where they come from.
