High DNS queries since deploying UberAgent


We've seen a significant spike in DNS queries by client devices since rolling out uberAgent.

Looking at default configuration and what we have it configured it seems UberAgent is polling DNS under the "network performance" timer.

Apart from moving the timer interval is there any way to reduce the queries being called?

    uberAgent automatically tries to resolve IP addresses to hostnames via DNS reverse lookups to give the administrator nice names instead of clumsy IP addresses in the dashboards.

    You are correct, this is happening for network performance. There is no possibility to turn the feature of. But, you could exclude highly affected processes with the option [NetworkTargetPerformanceProcess_Filter]. Note that you will lose any network-related data for these processes.
