This dashboard is designed to display metrics collected by prometheus from the bind_exporter (ISC BIND DNS server). The bind_exporter is created by DigitalOcean and hosted on github.

Required configuration in /etc/bind/named.conf.options:

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

You need to start the collector with access to the bind(named) pid file and enable the view stats group:

/usr/local/bin/bind_exporter /var/run/named/ -bind.stats-groups "server,view,tasks"
