Release 1.20: Kernel monitoring ‘superpowers’ and infrastructure-wide labels

In Netdata’s first major release of 2020, we’re introducing two new features on the opposite ends of the monitoring spectrum.

On one hand, we’re releasing an eBPF collector, which lets you collect, monitor, and visualize incredibly precise metrics straight from the Linux kernel. On the other, we added the ability to label agents to help you organize entire infrastructures and see every important piece of information about streaming nodes in one place.

Docker container monitoring with Netdata

Properly monitoring the health and performance of Docker containers is an essential skill for solo developers and large teams alike. As your infrastructure grows in complexity, it’s important to streamline every facet of the performance of your apps/services. Plus, it’s essential that the tools you use to make those performance decisions work across teams, and allow for complex scaling architectures.

Netdata does all that, and thanks to our Docker container collector, you can now monitor the health and performance of your Docker containers in real-time.

Introducing Netdata’s step-by-step tutorial

Health monitoring and performance troubleshooting aren’t easy. That’s exactly why we’re building Netdata, to democratize monitoring and make it accessible to anyone interested in learning more about their systems and applications.

Of course, teaching a complicated topic isn’t easy either.

Redefining monitoring with Netdata (and how it came to be)

I wanted to follow up Ron Miller’s article in TechCrunch about Netdata’s Series A funding from September with the story of Netdata’s inception.

It all started when I got… pissed off.

Release 1.19: More efficient DevOps with web log parsing and unit testing

Network monitoring is complex, which is why we’re developing a monitoring tool that will drastically increase DevOps productivity. This release is all about improving Netdata’s day-in, day-out performance. We’re working hard to make deploy enhancements that help engineers make faster, smarter decisions about their systems.

v1.19 of Netdata delivers a vastly improved way to collect, parse, and understand the health and performance of any service or application that runs through an Apache or Nginx web server.

And, perhaps more importantly, this improvement lands us one step closer to a generic application log parser for Netdata.

Web log parsing comes on top of 19 bug fixes, 17 improvements, and 18 documentation updates. Let’s jump in.
