Monitoring your server with netdata

People including me love netdata

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to install netdata on your linux server.

Installing netdata is quite easy. To get started login into SSH and run the following command:

bash <(curl -Ss

you might have to press enter or “y” a couple times but when you are done it should show:

 --- We are done! ---

  |.-.   .-.   .-.   .-.   .-.   .  netdata                          .-.   .-
  |   '-'   '-'   '-'   '-'   '-'   is installed and running now!  -'   '-'

it might also ask you to enable KSM (memory improvements). To do that run

    echo 1 >/sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run
    echo 1000 >/sys/kernel/mm/ksm/sleep_millisecs

And then visit your monitoring panel at http://yourserverip:19999.

That was it! Easy huh? In a coming tutorial I will show you how to have netdata notify you about issues on discord or slack.
