Perhaps there is something in
https://www.unbound.net/documentation/howto_statistics.html you can
start with? "Unbound has an option to enable extended statistics
collection...."

I'm not so good in programming, but I saw this: perhaps someone who is
more skilled could get a grip on this?

Other sources could be:
https://linux.die.net/man/1/dnsperf
