# netdata python.d.plugin configuration for bind_rndc
#
# This file is in YaML format. Generally the format is:
#
# name: value
#
# There are 2 sections:
# - global variables
# - one or more JOBS
#
# JOBS allow you to collect values from multiple sources.
# Each source will have its own set of charts.
#
# JOB parameters have to be indented (using spaces only, example below).
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------
# Global Variables
# These variables set the defaults for all JOBs, however each JOB
# may define its own, overriding the defaults.
# update_every sets the default data collection frequency.
# If unset, the python.d.plugin default is used.
# update_every: 1
# priority controls the order of charts at the netdata dashboard.
# Lower numbers move the charts towards the top of the page.
# If unset, the default for python.d.plugin is used.
# priority: 60000
# retries sets the number of retries to be made in case of failures.
# If unset, the default for python.d.plugin is used.
# Attempts to restore the service are made once every update_every
# and only if the module has collected values in the past.
# retries: 5
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------
# JOBS (data collection sources)
#
# The default JOBS share the same *name*. JOBS with the same name
# are mutually exclusive. Only one of them will be allowed running at
# any time. This allows autodetection to try several alternatives and
# pick the one that works.
#
# Any number of jobs is supported.
#
# All python.d.plugin JOBS (for all its modules) support a set of
# predefined parameters. These are:
#
# job_name:
# name: myname # the JOB's name as it will appear at the
# # dashboard (by default is the job_name)
# # JOBs sharing a name are mutually exclusive
# update_every: 1 # the JOB's data collection frequency
# priority: 60000 # the JOB's order on the dashboard
# retries: 5 # the JOB's number of restoration attempts
#
# Additionally to the above, bind_rndc also supports the following:
#
# named_stats_path: 'path to named.stats' # Default: '/var/log/bind/named.stats'
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# IMPORTANT Information
#
# BIND APPEND logs at EVERY RUN. Its NOT RECOMMENDED to set update_every below 30 sec.
# STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to create a bind-rndc conf file for logrotate
#
# To set up your BIND to dump stats do the following:
#
# 1. add to 'named.conf.options' options {}:
# statistics-file "/var/log/bind/named.stats";
#
# 2. Create bind/ directory in /var/log
# cd /var/log/ && mkdir bind
#
# 3. Change owner of directory to 'bind' user
# chown bind bind/
#
# 4. RELOAD (NOT restart) BIND
# systemctl reload bind9.serice
#
# 5. Run as a root 'rndc stats' to dump (BIND will create named.stats in new directory)
#
#
# To ALLOW NETDATA TO RUN 'rndc stats' change '/etc/bind/rndc.key' group to netdata
# chown :netdata rndc.key
#
# The last BUT NOT least is to create bind-rndc.conf in logrotate.d/
# The working one
# /var/log/bind/named.stats {
#
# daily
# rotate 4
# compress
# delaycompress
# create 0644 bind bind
# missingok
# postrotate
# rndc reload > /dev/null
# endscript
# }
#
# To test your logrotate conf file run as root:
#
# logrotate /etc/logrotate.d/bind-rndc -d (debug dry-run mode)
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# AUTO-DETECTION JOBS
# only one of them will run (they have the same name)
#
#local:
# named_stats_path: '/var/log/bind/named.stats'
