nftables_exporter

Export nftables statistics to prometheus

Need more?

If you need additional metrics - contact me :) Create a feature request, describe the metric that you would like to have and attach exported from nftables json file

Configuration

Command line options

  • --config=/path/to/file.yaml: Path to configuration file, default /etc/nftables_exporter.yaml
  • --verbose: verbosed log, default no
  • --debug: Debug logging, default no
  • --version: Show version and exit

Configuration file

Example content:

nftables_exporter:
  bind_to: "[::1]:9630"
  url_path: "/metrics"
  nft_location: /sbin/nft
  fake_nft_json: /path/to/nft.json

fake_nft_json used for debugging. I create this file with the command nft -j list ruleset > /path/to/nft.json. For normal exporter usage, this option is not needed.
