Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet. A DNS resolves queries for URLs into IP addresses for the purpose of locating computer services and devices worldwide. As of now, analytical applications with a vast amount of DNS data are a challenging problem. Clustering the features of domain traffic from a DNS data has given necessity to the need for more sophisticated analytics platforms and tools because of the sensitivity of the data characterization. In this study, a cloud based big data application, based on Apache Spark, on DNS data is proposed, as well as a periodic trend pattern based on traffic to partition numerous domain names and region into separate groups by the characteristics of their query traffic time series. Preliminary experimental results on a Turknet DNS data in daily operations are discussed with business intelligence applications.
