Windows Server 2012 R2 DNS Zone Statistics

Q: How can I get DNS zone level statistics on my Windows Server 2012 R2 DNS server?

A: Windows Server 2012 R2 introduces the ability to view statistics at a per-zone level instead of statistics for the entire DNS server. PowerShell is used to extract and view this information, with three types of statistics available: query, transfer, and update. Use the following commands to view these statistics (substituting your specific DNS zone).

$stat = Get-DnsServerStatistics -zonename savilltech.net
