  --interval INTEGER  Specify the metrics update interval in seconds.
  --help              Show this message and exit.

Configure Control Socket

The exporter uses Kea’s control socket and the statistic-get-all request. Consult the documentation on how to set up the control socket:


Kea Exporter needs to be able to read and write on the socket, hence it’s permissions might need to be modified accordingly.
