Deploying and monitoring performance for an entire Kubernetes cluster can be complex. To simplify the process, we’ve added service discovery functionality to eliminate complex configuration, in addition to more advanced monitoring for viewing activity inside containers. Service discovery identifies k8s pods running on a cluster and immediately starts monitoring system performance. All containers are identified, regardless of complexity.

We’re in the middle of a scary, uncertain time, and we hope those of you reading are staying safe and healthy. Despite the current challenges, the 40+ members of the remote-first Netdata team have been hard at work on the next version of the Netdata Agent: v1.21.0.

Remote working is hard, even when it’s carefully planned and executed.

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.
