Prometheus remote write backend


To use the prometheus remote write API with storage providers protobuf and snappy libraries should be installed first. Next, Netdata should be re-installed from the source. The installer will detect that the required libraries and utilities are now available.


An additional option in the backend configuration section is available for the remote write backend:

remote write URL path = /receive

The default value is /receive. remote write URL path is used to set an endpoint path for the remote write protocol. For example, if your endpoint is http://example.domain:example_port/storage/read you should set

destination = example.domain:example_port
remote write URL path = /storage/read

buffered and lost dimensions in the Netdata Backend Data Size operation monitoring chart estimate uncompressed buffer size on failures.


The remote write backend does not support buffer on failures
