DNS latency information

High latency in DNS traffic can result in an overall sluggish experience for end-users. In the DNS Settings pane, you can quickly identify DNS latency issues in your configuration.

Go to Network > DNS to view DNS latency information in the right side bar. If you use FortiGuard DNS, latency information for DNS, DNS filter, web filter, and outbreak prevention servers is also visible.

Hover your pointer over a latency value to see when it was last updated.

To view DNS latency information using the CLI:
# diagnose test application dnsproxy 2

worker: count=1 idx=0
retry_interval=500 query_timeout=1495
