Prometheus Unbound exporter
This repository provides code for a simple Prometheus metrics exporter
for the Unbound DNS resolver. This exporter
connects to Unbounds TLS control socket and sends the
command, causing Unbound to return metrics as key-value pairs. The
metrics exporter converts Unbound metric names to Prometheus metric
names and labels by using a set of regular expressions.
Go 1.16 or above is required.
