NS1 is an intelligent DNS and traffic management platform with a unique Filter Chain™ routing engine. NS1’s technology leverages infrastructure, application and network data to make intelligent routing decisions in real time, ensuring optimal application performance and reliability.

The NS1 Grafana App gives you a real-time view into DNS traffic and monitoring jobs configured within the NS1 platform.


The NS1 app requires a Grafana.net account, Grafana 3.0 (or higher) and an NS1 account. There are no other external dependencies, accounts or configurations needed.
