This is the the last of a 2-part blog post series regarding Netdata and Geth. If you missed the first, be sure to check it out here. Geth is short for Go-Ethereum and is the official implementation of the Ethereum Client in Go. Currently it’s one of the most widely used implementations and a core piece of infrastructure for the Ethereum ecosystem. With this proof of concept I wanted to showcase how easy it really is to gather data from any Prometheus endpoint and visualize them in Netdata.

As complexity of systems and applications continue to evolve and change, the number of metrics that need to be monitored grows in parallel. Whether you’re on a DevOps team, an SRE, or a developer building the code yourself, many of these components may be fragmented across your infrastructure, making it increasingly difficult to identify the root cause when experiencing downtime or abnormal behavior.

Current IT monitoring software lacks the necessary metrics for minimizing downtime for systems and applications. Most provide system and application metrics but there is much more than this required for properly monitoring your infrastructure. With eBPF there is a technological advancement that allows monitoring software to provide rich information from the Linux kernel and present it.

It’s been a long time since our last community update, rest assured that we have been hard at work here at Netdata. Community building is hard, especially when you have such a venerable community like the one here at Netdata, where hundreds of contributors have contributed to creating one of the best monitoring solutions that exist. Last year we started to concentrate working on consolidating the community by integrating the various platforms where people come together to talk about Netdata.

Infrastructure monitoring was difficult enough when entire businesses ran off a few bare metal servers in a dusty, forgotten closet. Other IT infrastructure monitoring tools fell short, unable to provide complete and granular-enough metrics in real time, even when we were only dealing with a handful of systems responsible for running every part of the application stack.

We’re excited to introduce Netdata 1.30.0. The ACLK-NG is a new, faster method of securely connecting a node running Netdata to Netdata Cloud. In our internal testing, it’s 4x faster than our previous implementation, which uses libmosquitto and libwebsockets.

Monitoring the current state and performance of applications is critical for IT Ops and DevOps teams alike. Understanding the health of an application is one of the most effective ways of anticipating potential bottlenecks or slowdowns, yet it’s one of the largest challenges faced by many organizations that build and deploy software. This is largely due to applications’ distributed and diversified nature.

As part of a modern software development team, you’re asked to do a lot. You’re supposed to build faster, release more frequently, crush bugs, and integrate testing suites along the way. You’re supposed to implement and practice a strong DevOps culture, read entire novels about SRE best practices, go agile, or add a bunch of Scrum ceremonies to everyone’s calendar.

StatsD is an industry-standard technology stack for monitoring applications and instrumenting any piece of software to deliver custom metrics. The StatsD architecture is based on delivering the metrics via UDP packets from any application to a central statsD server. Although the original StatsD server was written in Node.js, there are many implementations today, with Netdata being one of them.

While Kubernetes (k8s) might simplify the way you deploy, scale, and load-balance your applications, not all clusters come with "batteries included" when it comes to monitoring. Doubly so for a monitoring stack that helps you actively troubleshoot issues with your cluster. You need robust Kubernetes monitoring, but you don’t want to spend a week setting it up, much less a single valuable day.

The per-second metrics and interactive visualizations in the Netdata Agent don’t mean much if you don’t know what you should be looking at, or whether anything is going wrong on your node in the first place. That’s why Netdata has a built-in health watchdog to notify you when metrics show an anomaly or full-blown incident that demands your immediate attention. Every Netdata Agent comes with hundreds of preconfigured charts that you don’t need to edit in order to take advantage of, but you may want to create your own based on your infrastructure, node, workload, or applications.

Let's talk about talk about configuring the Netdata Agent, from finding where the configuration files are on your node, using the `edit-config` script, and seeing a few changes in action.

Group by node is a new feature in Netdata Cloud's Overview dashboard that helps you drill down to find nodes that might be experiencing anomalous behavior or a full-blown incident. In this short video, we run a small scenario to show you how it works.

Netdata is zero-configuration monitoring. It’s a principle that we’ve stood behind since the project’s beginning, when it was only our CEO Costa trying to solve a “painful, real-world problem,” and it’s one we stand by today. Our insistence on zero-configuration guides every product decision we make, every grooming process, and every React component our frontend teams design.

We're really excited about supercharging Netdata Cloud's infrastructure monitoring experience with composite charts. These charts look just like the ones you're familiar with, but feature real-time, per-second aggregated metrics from any number of distributed nodes from across your infrastructure. You can still pan, zoom, and highlight to your heart's content while also changing the aggregate function, filtering nodes, or jumping straight into single-node dashboards for root cause analysis.

Claiming is a security feature that proves you have administrative privileges to a given node, ensuring only you or your team can monitor your infrastructure using Netdata Cloud. To claim a node, you need a claiming script, and a node running the Netdata Agent.

We've tried really hard to make Netdata's open-source monitoring and troubleshooting Agent as simple and hassle-free as possible. This includes installation, which involves a single command, a few minutes of your time, and zero configuration. Once you've installed Netdata, you'll have access to thousands of metrics on hundreds of interactive charts that update every second, with zero configuration required. It'll even auto-detect your favorite services, like an Nginx web server or MySQL database, and collect metrics from those.

In this video, we’ll take a look at the Netdata's real-time dashboard, which has hundreds of charts, designed by both our team and the community. We’ll cover the elements related to the dashboard, such as contexts, dimensions, menus, and even raised alarms. By default, Netdata listens at port 19999. So, to get to the dashboard, open a web browser and enter your SERVER-IP ADDRESS plus port number or localhost plus port number.

netdata is a system for distributed real-time performance and health monitoring. It provides unparalleled insights, in real-time, of everything happening on the system it runs (including applications such as web and database servers), using modern interactive web dashboards.

netdata is fast and efficient, designed to permanently run on all systems (physical & virtual servers, containers, IoT devices), without disrupting their core function.
