CoreDNS availability

Availability plugin for CoreDNS.

Uses the coreDNS dns response metrics and error rcodes to get the correct and invalid availability.

By default the plugin will measure as errors the SERVFAIL rcodes, however this can be overwrite with a regex using custom_rcode_regex option.

Options

  • filter: (Optional) A prometheus filter string using concatenated labels (e.g: exported_service="alertmanager-api",service="alertgram")
  • custom_rcode_regex: (Optional) Custom regex to match error rcodes (e.g: (NXDOMAIN|SERVFAIL|FORMERR)). More codes here. If not set it will be used SERVFAIL by default.

Metric requirements

  • coredns_dns_responses_total: From coreDNS.
