Once the exporter is running, you also have to update your prometheus.yml configuration to let it scrape the exporter:

scrape_configs:
  - job_name: 'pihole'
    static_configs:
      - targets: ['localhost:9311']

Available CLI options

# Interval of time the exporter will fetch data from PI-Hole
  -interval duration (optional) (default 10s)

# Hostname of the Raspberry PI where PI-Hole is installed
  -pihole_hostname string (optional) (default "127.0.0.1")

# Password defined on the PI-Hole interface
  -pihole_password string (optional)

# Port to be used for the exporter
  -port string (optional) (default "9311")
