To be able to present pdns statistics histograms (i.e. answers, latency, auth4-answers, auth6-answers) as Prometheus histograms the sum of all observations also needs to be presented as a metric, alongside the buckets.


While trying to implement Prometheus histograms we've ran into an issue, namely that Prometheus histograms require the sum of all observations to be presented as well. e.g. in the case of auth answers histogram (answers-* metrics) the "total time spent answering queries" should also be exposed.

Would it make sense to re-open this issue? This issue talks about recursor and authoritative support as well but they don't have a Prometheus endpoint at all.
