Download a DNS activity data spreadsheet

While the DNS Summary activity report contains the top autonomous system names, geographic regions, domains, locations, query types, source IP addresses, and Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) categories for DNS request activity, you can download a comprehensive list of records in separate spreadsheets.

The data that is included in a spreadsheet is based on the filters you apply to the DNS Summary report. Each spreadsheet can list a maximum of 10,000 records.

How to

  1. In the navigation menu, select Monitoring > Activity. Click the DNS Summary tab.
    Note: If you are trying the new Enterprise Center interface, in the navigation menu, select Threat Analytics > Activity > DNS Summary.
  2. To filter DNS request data by date and time, see Filter data based on date and time.
  3. To filter DNS request data by criteria, see Filter DNS activity by criteria.
  4. To download a spreadsheet of top autonomous system name, domain, geo, location, AUP category, query type, or source IP data:
    1. Go to one of the following areas of the report:
      • Top Geo
      • Top Domain
      • Top Location
      • Top Autonomous System Name
      • Top AUP Category
      • Top Query Type
      • Top Source IP

      If one of the graphs you need is not visible on the page, select the menu icon associated with one of the Top graphs and select the data type you need.

    2. Click the download icon that is located at the top right of the section. If prompted by your browser, save the file to an accessible location on your computer. Otherwise, you can find the file wherever your browser saves downloaded files.
