Monitor this counter to compare the value against Secure Update Received and to determine how many systems fail to perform secure updates in DNS.

Total Query ReceivedThe total number of queries received by the DNS server. Monitor this counter to create baselines of server usage.
Total Query Received/SecThe average number of queries received by the DNS server in each second. Monitor this counter to create baselines of server use in high-use networks.
Total Response SentThe total number of responses sent by the DNS server. Monitor this counter to create baselines of server use.
Total Response Sent/SecThe average number of responses sent by the DNS server in each second. Monitor this counter to create baselines of server use in high-use networks.

Zone Transfer Request ReceivedThe total number of zone transfer requests received by the master DNS server. Monitor this counter to compare the value against Zone Transfer Failure and Zone Transfer Success.
Zone Transfer SuccessThe total number of successful zone transfers of the master DNS server. Monitor this counter to troubleshoot name resolution failures.
