Activity logs

The Activity log allows you to see individual DNS queries made from your locations or, for paid subscribers, HTTP requests made from WARP clients. You can use the Activity log to investigate anomalies in your network. You can search by the DNS query or HTTP request and investigate each by clicking on a row.

When you click on the row, you can see information related to the identity that is making the DNS request and attributes relevant to the DNS queries.
