I noticed your project today and it seems very nice with lots of great features (liked a lot the very simple plugin system) but the main issue for us is that we have also windows servers.
Is a windows port being planned or in the roadmap?
Our long term idea is to integrate one of these real time systems with prometheus (https://prometheus.io) for long time statistical storage and this can be done nicely with the API.
It would require total rewrite of almost everything apart from the web UI. I don't think it is/will be planned.
It could work with the new Linux for Windows 10 integration.
Hm... there could be a windows plugin to collect metrics through WMI.
netdata itself is not very linux specific. It needs POSIX and it has a lot of linux specific data collectors (which can be removed), but I think it shouldn't be so hard to port it, given that someone knows how to write a windows service in C and a data collector for WMI.
Hate to reopen this issue, but has there been any movement on getting Windows support?
I have to agree with @ktsaou. It's definitely not that outlandish of an idea to get this on Windows and it shouldn't really be too hard. I don't do Windows dev, but unfortunately work with Windows a lot. There is a large audience that this could benefit if there is a windows app made.
I stumbled upon this project about 5 days ago and so far so VERY VERY good. I have a mix of both Linux and Windows systems under management (most being Windows) and a Windows agent for netdata would be simply amazing!!
I am planning on 2 different 'mini projects':
Sadly, the dev of the Windows 'plugin' and/or 'agent' is way beyond my skillset - so I'll wait patiently like the rest of the peeps on this thread. To echo both @seanvree and @philip-ulrich above... has any movement happened on that project at all??
Keep up the awesome work on this project!! I genuinely believe that this is going to replace our mix/mash of so many different products. So SO awesome!!! The Windows agent would just be the icing on the cake!!
I also see that you can spit alerts out to Slack too!! Yet another HUGE +1 for you guys on that one!! :)
So I FINALLY got my Grafana install up and running on my Windows 10 box. (It's not easy as all these apps are designed for linux) So, I got Grafana working, InfluxDB all working as windows native services without having to run VMs. So, I'll re-look at getting this to work.
If anyone is using Grafana/Graphite in Windows I'd love to talk about getting this stuff to work.
I'm pretty good at getting python based applications working in Windows.
I plan on doing some work on it tonight (Dec 20th)
