/root/.lnd/start9/config.yaml), and dynamically populating them to the
stats.yaml file, marking each value with the appropriate keys for UI display (ie. masked or copyable). Running the configurator is typically included in the
A good example of the configurator producing the
stats.yaml file can be found here.
