10.1. How do I view statistics in my account queries

To view statistics of DNS requests from the SafeDNS protected networks and devices go to Dashboard -> Stats. The statistics can be sorted by predefined time frames – today, yesterday, week, month, or by a specific time frame. The statistics can be shown by hours or days. You can apply the filter just for one profile or for all profiles at once. The statistics are updated hourly.

10.2. How to see list of the most popular sites

To see the most popular sites (frequently visited sites) you have to go to Stats -> Popular and click Show.

Statistics of popular sites are available for today, yesterday, week, month, or for a specific time frame. Also, you can sort this list by domain. For example, you can check how popular the domain google.com is, typing it in the Domain box.

10.3. How to view list of blocked sites

Go to Dashboard -> Stats -> Blocks, then chose a range, profile and click the Show button.

10.4. How to see a list of the most popular website categories

To see stats of the most popular categories go to Dashboard -> Stats -> Categories, then click Show.

Once you press Export to CSV, a SafeDNS server will automatically generate a CSV file and send it to your email. CSV is a text format for presenting tabular data. In order to change a file to the CSV format, open your file in any tabular editor and change the coding.

10.9. How to get automatic statistic reports by email

This option makes it possible to receive detailed statistics monthly in the CSV format. To turn this option on go to Dashboard -> Stats -> Settings and tick Get monthly statistics. Then click Save.

10.10. How to view statistics for different computers, devices and networks

To view statistics for individual devices, you should have different filtering profiles configured.

Follow the steps in the NAT DNS setup below to create different filtering profiles.

NAT DNS setup:

  1. Enter Dashboard and assign Public IP of a NAT device to one of the existing filtering profiles (to use NAT DNS you should have more than 2 profiles).
  2. Manually or via DHCP set up target DNSes on the end devices (routers or gateways behind NAT).

A list of target DNSes:

  • 195.46.39.101
  • 195.46.39.102
  • 195.46.39.103
  • 195.46.39.104
  • 195.46.39.105
  1. Then go to Dashboard -> Settings -> NAT DNS, choose the profile you want to assign to the target IP (one IP – one profile). Click Save to apply the settings. 
  2. After that, all devices behind NAT will be filtered by the chosen rules.
  3. All Stats data can be shown in the Stats tab of a specific profile.

SafeDNS Agent:

You can use SafeDNS Agent for configuring different computers in the LAN. More information about the agent can be found here: https://www.safedns.com/en/safedns-agent-how-to-guide/
