Health monitoring

The Netdata Agent is a health watchdog for the health and performance of your systems, services, and applications. We've worked closely with our community of DevOps engineers, SREs, and developers to define hundreds of production-ready alarms that work without any configuration.

The Agent's health monitoring system is also dynamic and fully customizable. You can write entirely new alarms, tune the community-configured alarms for every app/service the Agent collects metrics from, or silence anything you're not interested in. You can even power complex lookups by running statistical algorithms against your metrics.

Configuration reference


Every infrastructure is different, so we're not interested in mandating how you should configure Netdata's health monitoring features. Instead, these guides should give you the details you need to tweak alarms to your heart's content.

Stopping notifications for individual alarms

Use dimension templates to create dynamic alarms

Notifications: Get notified about ongoing alarms from your Agents via your favorite platform(s), such as Slack, Discord, PagerDuty, email, and much more.
