x509 certificate monitoring with Netdata

This module checks the time until a x509 certificate expiration and its revocation status.


It produces the following charts:

  • Time Until Certificate Expiration in seconds
  • Revocation Status in status


Edit the go.d/x509check.conf configuration file using edit-config from the your agent's config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory
sudo ./edit-config go.d/x509check.conf

Needs only source.

Use smtp scheme for smtp servers, file for files and https or tcp for others. Port is mandatory for all non-file schemes.

Here is an example for 3 sources:

update_every : 60
- name : my_site_cert
source : https://my_site.org:443
- name : my_file_cert
source : file:///home/me/cert.pem
- name : my_smtp_cert
source : smtp://smtp.my_mail.org:587

For all available options and defaults please see module configuration file.

Revocation status

Revocation status check is disabled by default. To enable it set check_revocation_status to yes.

- name: my_site_cert
source: https://my_site.org:443
check_revocation_status: yes


Check the module debug output. Run the following command as netdata user:

./go.d.plugin -d -m x509check
