Export metrics to JSON document databases

You can use the JSON connector for the exporting engine to archive your agent's metrics to JSON document databases for long-term storage, further analysis, or correlation with data from other sources.


To enable data exporting to a JSON document database, run ./edit-config exporting.conf in the Netdata configuration directory and set the following options:

enabled = yes
destination = localhost:5448

Add :http or :https modifiers to the connector type if you need to use other than a plaintext protocol. For example: json:http:my_json_instance, json:https:my_json_instance. You can set basic HTTP authentication credentials using

    username = my_username
password = my_password

The JSON connector is further configurable using additional settings. See the exporting reference doc for details.
