Chrony monitoring with Netdata

Monitors the precision and statistics of a local chronyd server, and produces:

  • frequency
  • last offset
  • RMS offset
  • residual freq
  • root delay
  • root dispersion
  • skew
  • system time


Verify that user Netdata can execute chronyc tracking. If necessary, update /etc/chrony.conf, cmdallow.


Edit the python.d/chrony.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, if different, if different
sudo ./edit-config python.d/chrony.conf


# data collection frequency:
update_every: 1
# chrony query command:
command: 'chronyc -n tracking'
