Hi, I'm having issues and I can only see them in syslog alerts, do you know where I can monitor these INfoblox UDP and TCP query metrics, view and raise events when these threshold events occur. Actually, I want to generate it when it reaches the soft limit value.

I'm getting alerts like this and I only get the alert when I'm in syslog

Log:  warning client @0x7f562c459510 (no-peer): TCP client quota reached: quota reached
named[23534]: warning client @0x7f53ce573ea0 (no-peer): TCP client quota reached: quota reached

I also needed to get an email alert when I reached the tcp limit or something like that

show  named_tcp_clients_limit
 Member override inactive, tcp_clients_limit using grid value 1000

Please correct me if Im wrong,


I am reading this as how to create a new report "view and raise events when these threshold events occur."


From the infoblox GUI, go to the reporting and Anlytics tab.

From the reports section you should be able to establish a new report to monitor UDP and TCP query metrics although you will need to select the correct data sources related to queiries, TCP, and UDP., Under the new report your establishing you should be able to configure your threseholds for the metrics your looking to monitor.



Regarding having your email notified for meet threseholds I found this documention @
