This ensures that you always have an overview of the DNS and DHCP services as well as the operating system. In addition, you can review performance graphs, e.g. for CPU or RAM utilization or statistics on DNS or DHCP requests.  Since its launch in 2003, more than 85 customers in 55 countries have successfully deployed a total of over 1,500 appliances.
