Installing Netdata

September 23, 2018

  1. sudo apt install netdata
  2. Check that netdata is running on the default port 19999. Note that netdata does not by default respond to requests on public interfaces. I therefore used an SSH tunnel from my laptop (ssh -fN -L 19999:localhost:19999 to connect to netdata (localhost:19999).
  3. sudo apt install apache2-utils nginx
  4. Write an nginx config file to proxy traffic to netdata.
  5. Generate a username/password: sudo htpasswd -c netdata-access $USER
  6. sudo service nginx reload
