Step ∞. You're finished!

Congratulations. 🎉

You've completed the step-by-step Netdata tutorial. That means you're well on your way to becoming an expert in using our toolkit for health monitoring and performance troubleshooting.

But, perhaps more importantly, also that much closer to being an expert in the fundamental skills behind health monitoring and performance troubleshooting, which you can take with you to any job or project.

And that is the entire point of this tutorial, and Netdata's documentation as a whole—give you every resource possible to help you build faster, more resilient systems, services, and applications.

Along the way, you learned how to:

  • Navigate Netdata's dashboard and visually detect anomalies using its charts.
  • Monitor multiple systems using Netdata agents connected together with your browser and Netdata Cloud.
  • Edit your netdata.conf file to tweak Netdata to your liking.
  • Tune existing alarms and create entirely new ones, plus get notifications about alarms on your favorite services.
  • Take advantage of Netdata's auto-detection capabilities to ensure your applications/services are monitored with little to no configuration.
  • Use advanced features within Netdata's dashboard.
  • Build a custom dashboard using dashboard.js.
  • Save more historical metrics with the database engine or archive metrics to MongoDB.
  • Put Netdata behind a proxy to enable HTTPS and improve performance.

Seems like a lot, right? Well, we hope it felt manageable and, yes, even fun.

What's next?

Now that you're at the end of our step-by-step Netdata tutorial, the next steps are entirely up to you. In fact, you're just at the beginning of your journey into health monitoring and performance troubleshooting.

Our documentation exists to put every Netdata resource in front of you as easily and coherently as we possibly can. Click around, search, and find new mountains to climb.
