In this tutorial, we intend to teach you How To Install and Configure Netdata on Rocky Linux 9.
Netdata is distributed, real-time, performance and health monitoring for systems and applications. It is a highly optimized monitoring agent you install on all your systems and containers.
Netdata provides unparalleled insights, in real-time, of everything happening on the systems it runs (including web servers, databases, and applications), using highly interactive web dashboards. It can run autonomously, without any third-party components, or it can be integrated into existing monitoring toolchains.
Netdata is fast and efficient, designed to permanently run on all systems (physical & virtual servers, containers, IoT devices), without disrupting their core function.
Netdata is free, open-source software and it currently runs on Linux, FreeBSD, and macOS.
