Install Netdata with .deb/.rpm packages

We provide our own flavour of binary packages for the most common operating systems that comply with .RPM and .DEB packaging formats.

We have currently released packages following the .RPM format with version 1.16.0 and packages following the .DEB format with version 1.17.0. Our current packaging infrastructure provider is Package Cloud.

Netdata is committed to support installation of our solution to all operating systems. This is a constant battle for Netdata, as we strive to automate and make things easier for our users. For the operating system support matrix, please visit our distributions support page.

We provide two separate repositories, one for our stable releases and one for our nightly releases.

  1. Stable releases: Our stable production releases are hosted in netdata/netdata repository of package cloud
  2. Nightly releases: Our latest releases are hosted in netdata/netdata-edge repository of package cloud

Visit the repository pages and follow the quick set-up instructions to get started.

Using caching proxies with PackageCloud repositories

PackageCloud only provides HTTPS access to repositories they host, which means in turn that Netdata's package repositories are only accessible via HTTPS. This is known to cause issues with some setups that use a caching proxy for package downloads.

If you are using such a setup, there are a couple of ways you can work around this:

  • Configure your proxy to automatically pass through HTTPS connections without caching them. This is the simplest solution, but means that downloads of Netdata pacakges will not be cached.
  • Mirror the respository locally on your proxy system, and use that mirror when installing on other systems. This requires more setup and more disk space on the caching host, but it lets you cache the packages locally.
  • Some specific caching proxies may have alternative configuration options to deal with these issues. You can find such options in their documentation.
