Bind Exporter

GoDoc Build Status Go Report Card

Export BIND(named/dns) v9+ service metrics to Prometheus.

Getting started

go get
cd $GOPATH/src/
./bind_exporter [flags]

Grafana Dashboard:


Make sure BIND was built with libxml2 support. You can check with the following command: named -V | grep libxml2.

Configure BIND to open a statistics channel. It's recommended to run the bind_exporter next to BIND, so it's only necessary to open a port locally.

statistics-channels {
  inet port 8053 allow {; };
