Each enabled input and output comes with a set of metrics in order to monitor performance and troubleshoot your running instance. dnsmonster uses the go-metrics library which makes it easy to register metrics on the fly and in a modular way.

currently, three metric outputs are supported:

  • stderr
  • statsd
  • prometheus

Configuration parameters

; Metric Endpoint Service. Choices: stderr, statsd, prometheus
MetricEndpointType = stderr

; Statsd endpoint. Example: 
MetricStatsdAgent =

; Prometheus Registry endpoint. Example:
MetricPrometheusEndpoint =

; Interval between sending results to Metric Endpoint
MetricFlushInterval = 10s
