The open source Agent monitors the system it's installed on, along with any applications we have a collector for. Cloud integrates many distributed Agents into one cloud-hosted web application that you can use to see an entire infrastructure's real-time metrics.
No. You can configure your Agent to disable Cloud functionality either at installation or at runtime.
The Netdata Agent will always remain free, open-source software. Netdata Cloud is closed source, with all basic features provided free of charge. Paid features are in Netdata Cloud's future, but there is no timeline for these features yet. Netdata does not and never will sell your personal data or data about your deployment.
Netdata Cloud's frontend and backend code is all closed source.
Not yet! Send us an email at [email protected] if you're interested. We'd love to learn more about your requirements and use case.
If you want to see both the parent node and its child nodes in Netdata Cloud, you must claim all of them via the claiming process.
Yes. If it's not enabled by default on your system, you can now enable the new Dark or Blue themes. Click on the Settings tab, then choose your preferred theme.
This is now possible! Use the dashboards feature to build new dashboards tailored specifically to your infrastructure.
Click on the Claim Nodes item beneath your Space's name in the left-hand navigation.
Copy the claiming script to your node and run it. See the claiming doc for details.
A node's name cannot be changed from within Netdata Cloud.
Once finished, restart the node with
sudo systemctl netdata restart, or the appropriate method for your system, to see
the changed name reflected in Netdata Cloud.
Click on the name of the War Room in the top navigation, then List Nodes. Click on the 🗑 icon next to the node you want to remove. Removing a node from a War Room does not remove it from your Space.
A node can belong to multiple War Rooms.
First, switch to the War Room you want to move the node to. Click on the name of the War Room in the top navigation, then Add Nodes. Click the checkbox next to the node in question, then click + Add at the top of the panel.
Next, switch back to the War Room original War Room and remove the node.
See the War Room reference for additional details.
Follow the reclaiming guide. Don't forget to restart your Agent with
sudo service netdata restart or the appropriate equivalent for your system!
You can only claim any given node in a single Space. To claim a node in a different Space, you will have to reclaim the node.
You can add a description to a Space, but a Space's name is a unique identifier that cannot be modified.
In the left-hand navigation, click the Manage Space link. Click the Delete button and confirm you want to delete your Space.
You cannot rename a War Room at this time.
The General War Room cannot be deleted. For other rooms, click the name of the War Room from the top navigation, then Manage War Room. In the management panel, click the Delete button. Confirm that you want to delete your War Room.
It is not possible to change the email address associated with your Netdata Cloud account.
You can always create a new account with a different email and reclaim nodes into the new Space.
If you want to maintain your Space, send an invitation to the email address you want to use, and make that user an administrator for your Space. Accept the invitation on your new email and sign in. Confirm that you have full administrative access to the Space and associated War Rooms. Finally, you can sign in with your initial email and leave the Space.
