Men & Mice Releases New DNS Expert 1.5

Men & Mice Thursday released DNS
Expert version 1.5 update, with new features including integrated Ping, Traceroute and DNS Query capabilities, along with an enhanced user interface and charting for “user-friendly” reports.

Using DNS Expert version 1.5, administrators can utilize Ping, Traceroute and DNS Query functions, simplifying the process of fixing problems discovered by DNS Expert’s core analysis functionality. According to Men & Mice, DNS Expert 1.5’s new charting features make using the product “a more intuitive, streamlined DNS analysis and problem solving experience.”

New features of DNS Expert version 1.5 include:

  • The ability to view Ping statistics graphically, with a histogram and
    advanced logging information
  • Execute a user-defined number of traceroutes, average those traceroutes and present the data as a scatterplot graphic
  • The new DNS Query function can return all of the DNS information for the host, including: A Records, NS Records, MX Records, CNAME, SOA, HINFO, PTR Record and Zone Transfers

DNS Expert performs in-depth analysis of DNS Zone data and reports the results in a clear, graphical format. The tool’s comprehensive set of 68 verification tests isolate errors in any DNS system, such as security issues like mail relaying and DNS spoofing. The graphical interface was designed to make it easy to understand the various commands and results.
