Release v1.26.0

The v1.26.0 release of the Netdata Agent brings exciting new collectors written in Go, a new integration with the DevOps startup StackPulse, and massive improvements to the way users navigate Netdata's documentation. We've also added compatibility with an exciting new feature that's coming soon to Netdata Cloud—stay tuned!

This release contains 3 new collectors, 1 new notifcation method, 21 improvements, 13 documentation updates, and 12 bug fixes.

At a glance

The Netdata Agent can now collect metrics from files/directories, systemd units, and ISC DHCP servers. These new collectors are part of our larger effort to migrate all collectors to Go, which provides more extensibility compared to previous implementations. You can read about each of these new collectors in our docs: filecheck, systemd, isc_dhcpd.

We're excited to extend our health watchdog even further to integrate with StackPulse, which is designed to help SREs manage and respond to incidents with code and automation. You can read more about how to configure Netdata to send notifications to StackPulse in the docs.

We rearchitected our docs/education site, Netdata Learn, to focus on users actions rather than the Netdata Agent's hierarchy of code. The core docs now better guide users through the most important actions, such as configuring collectors and interacting with charts, independent of whether they use only the Netdata Agent, or the Agent in combination with Netdata Cloud. Of course, all of our reference documentation is still alive and kicking for those who want to dive into every configuration option or API query. We also revamped our guides page with better visuals, a search/filter, and more rational categories.

Release v1.25.0

The v1.25.0 release of the Netdata Agent is focused on improving Netdata's usability across the board. We added more customization to how the Prometheus collector implemented in v1.24 meaningfully visualizes metrics. In addition, we've focused on fixing bugs and ensuring that core functionality of the Netdata Agent, such as the ACLK, works more efficiently.

This release contains 1 new collector, 27 improvements, 15 documentation updates, and 59 bug fixes.

At a glance

Improved filtering and grouping for the Prometheus collector gives you more flexibility in how Netdata collects and visualizes metrics from more than 600 Prometheus endpoints. The Prometheus collector is designed to visualize every metric exposed on a Prometheus endpoint generically, but one chart for every metric is often not the most meaningful presentation. Filtering and grouping options bring the same "bespoke" feeling that you find in our other collectors, such as having input/output metrics on a single chart instead of two.

You can read about filtering and grouping in our documentation right now. If you haven't heard about the generic Prometheus collector, read our v1.24 blog post for details on why we continuously make Netdata more interoperable with other monitoring solutions.

We also made significant improvements to the robustness and responsiveness of the Agent-Cloud link (ACLK), which is used to stream metrics and alarm status if you sign up for Netdata Cloud and claim your nodes. The disconnect and reconnect process is now more reliable, and all metrics data is now Gzip compressed. Now that the payloads are smaller and more quickly processed, you'll see improved responsiveness when viewing dashboards in Netdata Cloud.

We added a new Elasticsearch collector, written in Go, to help you collect metrics from and monitor Elasticsearch instances. This collector is preinstalled with the Netdata Agent and often works with zero configuration, but can also be tweaked to collect only specific stats, gather metrics with TLS, and more. See the documentation for generated charts and configuration options.

Release v1.24.0

The v1.24.0 release of the Netdata Agent brings enhancements to the breadth of metrics we collect with a new generic Prometheus/OpenMetrics collector and enhanced storage and querying with a new multi-host database mode.

At a glance

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.

The Netdata Agent database engine enables long-term storage of per-second metrics inside the Agent using both RAM and disk space. In our new, multi-host database mode, parent and child nodes share resources in a single instance. Any pre-existing child node metrics remain in the legacy dbengine paths to ensure backward compatibility. To migrate those nodes to the new multi-host DB, simply delete those metric cache paths. This new mode supports distributed queries for the Agent as well as specific scenarios like streaming metrics from the child to parent database, streaming multiple child nodes to a single parent, and remembering which child or children are connected to the database even if streaming hasn't started.

Netdata v1.23.2

Release v1.23.2 of the Netdata Agent is a patch for one significant issue.

PR #9491 fixed a buffer overrun vulnerability in Netdata's JSON parsing code. This vulnerability could be used to crash Agents remotely, and in some circumstances, could be used in an arbitrary code execution (ACE) exploit.

Release v1.23.0

The v1.23.0 release of the Netdata Agent is all about unlocking new depths of visibility for your applications, services, and systems. We have Kubernetes service discovery, new eBPF metrics like virtual filesystem switch and bandwidth per process out of the Linux kernel at event frequency, more interoperability with your monitoring stack thanks to a new exporting engine, and much more.

This release contains 2 new collectors, 1 new exporting connector, 1 new alarm notification method, 55 improvements, 45 documentation updates, and 40 bug fixes.

At a glance

Our service discovery collector detects Kubernetes (k8s) pods and immediately collects metrics from 22 different services as the associated pods are created, destroyed, and scaled. Service discovery is installed when you use our Helm chart, which means you can now collect and visualize service-, pod-, Kubelet-, kube-proxy-, and node-level k8s metrics with one helm install command and zero configuration. All our Kubernetes monitoring components are open source and free for clusters of any size.

Our low-level Linux kernel monitoring via eBPF is now supercharged. Thanks to an integration with apps.plugin, you can now monitor how a specific application interacts with the Linux kernel. This update also includes new metrics, such as virtual filesystem switch, bandwidth per process, and much more. Netdata collects these metrics at an event frequency, even better than our famous 1s granularity, so that you can debug applications or anomalies with pinpoint accuracy. The eBPF collector is also now installed and enabled by default except on static builds.

Read our guide on troubleshooting apps with eBPF metrics for more details.

Netdata is now more interoperable with your existing monitoring stack thanks to the exporting engine, which replaces the backends system. You can now export to multiple external databases through Graphite, Google Cloud Pub/Sub, Prometheus remote write, MongoDB, and JSON connectors, plus others. Send metrics as soon as they're collected to enrich single pane of glass views or analyze Netdata's metrics with machine learning.

Read our guide on exporting metrics to Graphite for specifics on just one of many pipelines you can set up to archive your Netdata metrics.

We're also releasing an improvement for the availability of your monitoring and metrics: persistent metadata. The Agent now writes metadata to disk alongside metrics to allow access to non-active charts from Netdata Cloud and enable future features.

We added some enhancements to our documentation site, including a new guides section. We'll continue to populate with more use case- and scenario-based content to help you monitor, troubleshoot, visualize, and export your Netdata metrics.

Netdata v1.22.1

Release v1.22.1 is a hotfix release to address issues related to packaging and how Agents connect to Netdata Cloud.

With packaging, we fixed an error that caused DEB and RPM packages to only display the old dashboard and not the new React version. We also fixed an issue that caused Netdata Docker containers to fail due to incorrect permissions. Finally, we ensured JSON-C is correctly fetched and built for compatibility with Netdata Cloud.

We appreciate our community's help in identifying and diagnosing these issues so we could fix them quickly.

For Netdata Cloud, we optimized the on-connect payload sent through the Agent-Cloud link to improve latency between Agents and Cloud. We also removed a check for old alarm status when sending alarms to Cloud via the ACLK.

Finally, we made a fix that ensures Agents running on systems using the musl C library can receive auto-updates.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the latency issue on the ACLK and suppress the diagnostics. (#8992) by amoss and stelfrag
  • Restored old semantics of "netdata -W set" command. (#8987) by mfundul
  • Added JSON-C packaging fils to make dist. (#8986) by Ferroin
  • Fixed bundling of React dashboard in DEB and RPM packages. (#8988) by Ferroin
  • Removed check for old alarm status. (#8978) by stelfrag
  • Fixed shutdown via netdatacli with musl C library. (#8931) by mfundul

Release v1.22.0

Release v1.22.0 marks the official launch of our rearchitected Netdata Cloud! This Agent release contains both backend and interface changes necessary to connect your distributed nodes to this dramatically improved experience.

Netdata Cloud builds on top of our open source monitoring Agent to give you real-time visibility for your entire infrastructure. Once you've connected your Agents to Cloud, you can view key metrics, insightful charts, and active alarms from all your nodes in a single web interface. When an anomaly strikes, seamlessly navigate to any node to troubleshoot and discover the root cause with the familiar Netdata dashboard.

Animated GIF of Netdata Cloud

Sign in to Cloud and read our Get started with Cloud guide for details on updating your nodes, claiming them, and navigating the new Cloud.

While Netdata Cloud offers a centralized method of monitoring your Agents, your metrics data is not stored or centralized in any way. Metrics data remains with your nodes and is only streamed to your browser through Cloud.

In addition, Cloud only expands on the functionality of the wildly popular free and open source Agent. We will never make any of our open source Agent features Cloud-exclusive, and we will actively continue to develop the Agent so that we can integrate new features with Netdata Cloud.

This release also contains 1 new collector, 1 new exporting connector, 1 new alarm notification method, 27 improvements, 16 documentation updates, and 22 bug fixes.

At a glance

We added a new collector called whoisquery that helps you monitor a domain name's expiration date. You can track as many domains as you'd like, and set custom warning and critical thresholds for each. For more information on setup and configuration, see the Whois domain expiry monitoring documentation.

We added a new connector to our experimental exporting engine: Prometheus remote write. You can use this connector to send Netdata metrics to your choice of more than 20 external storage providers for long-term archiving and further analysis.

Our new documentation experience is now available at Netdata Learn! We encourage you to try it out and give us feedback or ask questions in our GitHub issues. Learn features documentation for both the Agent and Cloud in separate-but-connected vaults, which streamlines the experience of learning about both products.

While Learn only features documentation for now, we plan on releasing more types of educational content serving the Agent's open-source community of developers, sysadmins, and DevOps folks. We'll have more to announce soon, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy what we believe is a smoother (and prettier) docs experience.

Netdata v1.21.1

Release v1.21.1 is a hotfix release to improve the performance of the new React dashboard, which was merged and enabled by default in v1.21.0.

The React dashboard shipped in v1.21.0 did not properly freeze charts that were outside of the browser's viewport. If a user who loaded many charts by scrolling through the dashboard, charts outside of their browser's viewport continued updating. This excess of chart updates caused all charts to update more slowly than every second.

v.1.21.1 includes improvements to the way the Netdata dashboard freezes, maintains state, and restores charts as users scroll.

Netdata v1.21.0

Release v1.21.0 contains 2 new collectors, 3 new exporting connectors, 37 bug fixes, 46 improvements, and 25 documentation updates. We also made 26 bug fixes or improvements related to the upcoming release of Netdata Cloud.

At a glance

We added a new collector for Apache Pulsar, a popular open-source distributed pub-sub messaging system. We use Pulsar in our Netdata Cloud infrastructure (more on that later this month!), and are excited to start sharing metrics about our own Pulsar systems when the time comes. The Pulsar collector attempts to auto-detect any running Pulsar processes, but you can always configure the collector based on your setup.

Also new in v1.21 is a VerneMQ collector. We use the open-source MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) broker for Netdata Cloud as well. As with Pulsar, you can configure the VerneMQ collector to auto-detect your installation in just a few steps.

Our experimental exporting engine received significant updates with new connectors for Prometheus remote write, MongoDB, and AWS Kinesis Data Streams. You can now send Netdata metrics to more than 20 additional external storage providers for long-term archiving and deeper analysis. Learn more about the exporting engine in our documentation.

We upgraded our TLS compatibility to include 1.3, which applies to HTTPS for both Netdata's web server and streaming connections. TLS 1.3 is the most up-to-date version of the TLS protocol, and contains important fixes and improvements to ensure strong encryption. If you enabled TLS in the web server or streaming, Netdata attempts to use 1.3 by default, but you can also set the version and ciphers explicitly. Learn more in the documentation.

The Netdata dashboard has been completely re-written in React. While the look and behavior hasn't changed, these under-the-hood changes enable a suite of new features, UX improvements, and design overhauls. With React, we'll be able to work faster and better resource our talented engineers.

As part of the ongoing work to polish our eBPF collector tech preview, we've now proven the collector's performance is very good, and have vastly expanded the number of operating system versions the collector works on. Learn how to enable it in our documentation. We've also extensively stress-tested the eBPF collector and found that it's impressively fast given the depth of metrics it collects! Read up on our benchmarking analysis on GitHub.
