Hi Stephane, Beastie,
I am making a compromise. More statistics, but not the amount nor
detail that a dedicated package like DSC provides. Without webpages
with pretty graphs and data selection user interface; that does not
belong inside the nameserver. More similar to the BIND8_STATS in NSD
than the DSC package.
As config option 'extended-statictics'; default turned off (because of
types of queries, answer error codes, validation status, and also
spoof-nearmiss-counter (a plain unwanted traffic counter).
$ unbound-control stats
It does not examine the query names, server names, or addresses, as that
creates a lot of extra code (and Stephane, I hear you, that is a problem).
Is this format easy to use as input for rrdtool, cacti, munin, ... ?
I could also print out:
