Monitoring unbound(8) using Net-SNMP, Telegraf, InfluxDB and Elasticsearch
I’ve enabled an OpenBSD unbound(8) daemon that is used as a central DNS cache resolver. Now I needed to know what it was doing and how it performed. The question was answered grabbing statistics from unbound and render them using Grafana. The whole monitoring stack is composed of Net-SNMP, Telegraf and InfluxDB for the metrics part ; and syslogd(8), Logstash and Elasticsearch for the logs part. Of course, most of those run on OpenBSD (6.3) ; except Telegraf, which is not available (yet).
