Starting with BIND 9.5.0, the most widely used DNS server software provides extensive statistics about queries, responses and lots of other information. The BIND plugin retrieves this information that's encoded in XML and provided via HTTP and submits the values to collectd.


BIND configuration:

statistics-channels {
  inet localhost port 8053;

collectd configuration:

<Plugin "bind">
  URL "http://localhost:8053/"
  OpCodes         true
  QTypes          true
  ServerStats     true
  ZoneMaintStats  true
  ResolverStats   false
  MemoryStats     true
  <View "_default">
    QTypes        true
    ResolverStats true
    CacheRRSets   true
    Zone ""
