We anticipate even more features to be rolled out soon to add greater functionality and granularity to Sonar Lite.

Constellix has just released the iOS version of their free mobile app,Sonar Lite, the free solution for system administrators who need complete visibility of their domains on a global scale. Along with the release come two new features for both platforms, DNS Trace and DNS Lookup.

“We anticipate even more features to be rolled out soon to add greater functionality and granularity to Sonar Lite,” says President of Constellix Steven Job. Users can also look forward to the upcoming release of the full Constellix Traffic Management Suite by end of Q1 2016. Current DNS Made Easy members can get early access to the Constellix suite and test-drive it while it’s still in beta for a limited time.

The new update for both platforms included the addition of DNS Lookup and DNS Trace features. Sonar lite is the only app that allows you to specify a DNS Lookup by a specified location, rather than configuring by region. This narrower focus allows admins to make better-informed decisions when troubleshooting connectivity issues. Users can even verify the performance of their CDN services using DNS Lookup.

DNS Trace allows users to see the exact path their queries are taking all the from the root server to the name servers. Using Constellix’s massive infrastructure, Sonar Lite is able to follow the path of the user’s query and report the time it takes for packets to travel between each point from root server, to TLD, to NS lookup.

Sonar Lite is changing the game for network monitoring. While it may seem like a simple tool, Sonar Lite is “just the foot in the door for network monitoring, it’s just the beginning of what the full suite is capable of,” says President of Constellix Steven Job. The full Constellix suite will combine the monitoring technology of Sonar Lite with in-depth analytics and intelligent troubleshooting.

Sonar Lite is supported by Constellix’s massive infrastructure, designed by the same engineers who built DNS Made Easy, the leader in global IP Anycast + DNS services. The app takes full advantage of the network, allowing users to specify DNS lookups and Traceroutes from dozens of monitoring nodes around the world.

Sonar Lite provides users with a quick snapshot of their domain’s connectivity from dozens of points around the world. Users can use this information to troubleshoot network issues, latency, and verify connectivity through different protocols all from the palm of their hand.
