As with most commercial products, software today is mass produced for reasons of simple economics. But making the same software work for as many people as possible while also meeting the unique requirements different people and organizations have is a challenging task.

I’m excited to announce an extension to Netdata’s series A funding in the amount of $14.2M, bringing the total amount of funding to $31M. We’re thrilled to share the news; the additional funding will help us continue building the future of health monitoring and performance troubleshooting. In case you missed it, our mission is to redefine infrastructure monitoring. Our unique approach to building the right solution with and for the community is no easy task.

The v1.25.0 release of the Netdata Agent delivers on our commitment to make our metrics collection, visualization, and troubleshooting platform more stable and usable. We enhanced our recently-added Prometheus collector with user-configurable filtering and grouping, made dramatic improvements to the reliability of the Agent-Cloud link that streams metrics on-demand to your browser when you use Netdata Cloud, and more. Let’s jump in and look at each improvement.

When an incident strikes, and every minute spent on root cause analysis delays the time to resolution, the real-world consequences can be dire. Troubleshooting an event requires a certain data set: every metric, at the greatest granularity, in one place, available in real time. Limits on the number or type of metrics, collection frequency, or time to visualization can mean the difference between timely resolution and unacceptable losses in time, money, and productivity.

Today, we are excited to launch our first Netdata Cloud Insights feature, Metric Correlations, developed for discovering underlying issues more quickly and identifying the root cause more efficiently. Read on to learn more about our approach to developing this new feature, how it works, and the many benefits you’ll find incorporating this into your team’s troubleshooting workflow.

We recently adopted NodeBB as our software of choice for building the Netdata Community. We have many good reasons for why we wanted to provide our community with a proper home online, but I wanted to cover some of the technical reasons for choosing NodeBB for our platform, and the many parallels between the NodeBB and Netdata projects, which was certainly a driving force behind this decision.

This release broadens our commitment to open standards, interoperability, and extensibility with a new generic Prometheus collector that works seamlessly with any application that makes its metrics available in the Prometheus/OpenMetrics exposition format, including support for Windows 10 via windows_exporter. Netdata will autodetect over 600 Prometheus endpoints and instantly generate charts with all the exposed metrics, meaningfully visualized.

When I first started the project that became the Netdata Agent, I was trying to solve a painful, real-world problem: IT infrastructure monitoring tools fell short when it came to providing complete, granular metrics in real time. Believe me, I had no shortage of tools to choose from, but each of them lacked something either in the ability to see every metric I needed, or see it at the frequency required.

Netdata Cloud works differently from other monitoring solutions. Most solutions limit the number and frequency of metrics because they rely on architectures that aggregate data. Netdata Cloud, however, streams limited metadata from each node running the Netdata Agent, keeping you in control of the data on your systems. The advantage of this architecture is that there is no limit to the number or frequency of metrics, regardless of the scale or complexity of your IT infrastructure.

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.
