Bind ZenPack

Monitoring Bind via rdnc stats


The ZenPack Catalog has moved to its new home at https://www.zenoss.com/product/zenpacks as of January 17, 2017. The following information may be out of date, and this page will eventually be removed.


This ZenPack is developed by the Zenoss user community and supported via our online forums. Zenoss, Inc. does not provide direct support for this ZenPack.


Version 1.0.1beta- Download
Released on 2016/02/01
Compatible with Zenoss Core 4.2.x


This zenpack uses rndc to generate statistics for bind. The stats are parsed via a python script which is executed from a command data source.

Setup steps:

-Configure the server for rndc (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Deployment_Guide/s2-bind-rndc.html)- -Setup a cronjob to run rndc stats every 5 minutes -Copy the script/namedstats.py to the server you want to montior (I use puppet for this) -Update the Bind monitoring template to point to where the script resides and the path to the named.stats file -Set the command username and password of an account with sufficient privildeges to read the named.stats file - I used an account which is in the named group
