[TOOLS] netdata

Unread postby meveric » Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:07 am

Netdata is a very nice tool for monitoring your system.
It gives infos, about your harddrive, cpu, ram, network and all kind of stuff.
It runs under python so you don't need apache or something to access it via your web-browser. Just browse it to your system on port 19999 (default).

I've compiled it for Debian Jessie and Debian Stretch both armhf and arm64 but there's a good chance you can run it under Ubuntu as well with the same packages.

You can install it from my repository (jessie/main or stretch/main package list) with:
Code: Select all
apt-get install netdata

yep, I was very surprised when I've seen it first as well and I'm very used to munin at work as well :)
And it's a very nice presented which might make it interesting for "Sales Guys" as it looks rather nice and they like flashy graphics.

The problem with it is that it keeps the readings for all items stored in some files for the last 4h or so. Might be a configuration issue, because I would have liked to have it poll only on demand, when the website is open, and not write data to disk

https://github.com/firehol/netdata/wiki/Configuration states there is a setting "memory mode" which you can set to "RAM" and the collected values are only held in memory and not written to disk.
If you also reduce the number of values that should be held in the database to a lower number it should be a similar scenario as you desire.

Apparently this tool is suppose to work directly from RAM anyway and only holds a few values (by default the values of the last hour).
So storing on disk is not really important. In fact the data that is written on the disk is copied to RAM before it's being displayed, so I guess you can keep it directly in RAM anyway.
