- Update to v1.10.0
  * new plugins:
  - BTRFS - monitor the allocations of BTRFS filesystems (netdata can now
    properly detect when btrfs is going out of space)
  - BCACHE - monitor the caching block layer that allows building hybrid
    disks using normal HDDs and SSDs

  * enhanced/improved plugins:
  - statsd
    + statsd dimensions now support the options the external plugin
    dimensions support (currently the only usable option is hidden to add
    the dimension, but make it hidden on the dashboard - a hidden
    dimension can participate in various calculations, including alarms).
    + statsd now reports the CPU usage of its threads at the netdata
    + statsd metrics are logged to access.log the first time they are
    + statsd metrics now accept the special value zinit to allow them get
    initialized without altering their values (this is useful if you have
    rare metrics that you need to initialize when netdata starts).
    + statsd over TCP is now a lot faster - netdata can process up to 3.5mil
    statsd metrics / second using just one core. Added options to control
    the timeouts of TCP statsd connections.
    + fixed the title and context of statsd private charts
    + statsd private charts can now be hidden from the dashboard
  - web_log
    + Added web server response timings histogram
  - containers monitoring
    + netdata now monitors systemd-nspawn containers.
    + netdata now renames charts of kubernetes containers.
    + virsh is now called with -r to avoid prompting for password
    + cgroup-network is now a lot more strict, preventing unauthorized
    privilege escalation
    + cgroup-network now searches for container processes in sub-cgroups
    too - this improves the mapping of network interfaces to containers
    + cgroup-network now works even when there are no veth interfaces
    in the system
  - system memory
    + treat slab memory as cached
    + added a new chart for monitoring the memory available for use,
    before hitting swap
    + netdata now monitors Linux hugepages and (transparent) hugepages
  - diskspace
    + support huge amounts of mountpoints - netdata was crashing with stack
    overflow due to recursion - now it is a loop, so any number of mount
    points is supported
  - network interfaces
    + moved tcp passive and active opens to a separate chart, to allow the
    TCP issues dimensions scale better by default
    + updated the information presented on TCP charts to match the latest
    v4.15 kernel source
  - postgres
    + new charts:
    replication delta
    WAL archive
    temporary files
    + The postgres plugin now also works when postgres is in recovery mode.
  - rabbitmq
    + added Erlang run queue chart. This is useful in conjunction with the
    existing Erlang processes chart to get a better overall idea of what's
    going on in the Erlang VM.
    + added rabbitmq information on the dashboard to complement the charts.
  - apps.plugin
    netdata prior to this version was detecting the user and group of
    processes by examining the ownership of /proc/PID/stat. Unfortunately it
    seems that the owneship of files in /proc do not change when the process
    switches user. So, netdata could not detect the user and group of
    processes that started as root and then switched to another user.
    Now netdata reads /proc/PID/status:
    + process ownship information is now accurate
    + eliminated the need to read /proc/PID/statm (all the information of
    /proc/PID/statm is available in /proc/PID/status)
    + allowed netdata to read VmSwap, so a new chart has been added to
    monitor the swap memory usage per process, user and group.
    + The new plugin is 20% more expensive in terms of CPU. We tried hard
    to optimize it, but this is as good as it can get.
  - haproxy
    + hrsp_1xx, hrsp_2xx, hrsp_3xx, hrsp_4xx, hrsp_5xx, hrsp_other,
    hrsp_total for backands and frontends
    + qtime, ctime, rtime, ttime metrics for backend servers
    + backend servers In UP state
  - uptime
    + netdata now uses /proc/uptime when CLOCK_BOOTTIME does not report the
    same uptime. In containers CLOCK_BOOTTIME reports the uptime of the
    host, while /proc/uptime reports the uptime of the container, so now
    netdata correctly reports the uptime of the container.
  - ksm
    + removed to_scan dimension
    + the savings % reported by netdata was less than the actual - fixed it.
  - mdstat
    + various fixes to better monitor rebuild time and rate
  - elasticsearch
    + Added several charts for translog / indices segments statistics and
    JVM buffer pool utilization, which are often helpful when evaluating
    an elasticsearch node health
  - apcupsd
    + netdata now supports monitoring multiple APC UPSes.
  - isc-dhcpd
    + netdata now also supports monitoring IPv6 leases
  - fronius
    + added a new dimension solar_consumption
    + added alarms
  - stiebeleltron
    + added alarms
  - python.d
    + python.d.plugin can now start even if /etc/netdata/python.d.conf
    is missing
    + python.d.plugin now has an internal run counter
    + the unicode decoding of the plugin has been fixed
    + the plugin now does not validate self-signed certificates
    + the plugin can not revive obsolete charts
  - charts.d
    + charts.d.plugin BASH modules can now have custom number of retries in
    case of data collection failures
  * new alarm notifications plugins:
  - alerta
  - IRC
  * web server:
  - netdata now has a new internal web server that supports a fixed number
    of threads - we call it static web server. This web server allows
    netdata to work around memory fragmentation (since the treads are fixed,
    the underlying memory allocators reuse the same memory arenas) and cpu
    utilization (we can control the number of threads that will be used by
    netdata). This is the default now.
  - now the static threads web server reports the CPU usage of each of its
  - the HTTP response headers now include the netdata version
  * dashboard:
  - the print button now respects the URL path netdata is hosted.
  - dygraphs updated to the latest version - this fixes an issue that
    prevented netdata charts from being interactive under certain conditions
  - added dygraph theme logscale
  - fontawesome updated to version 5
  - d3 updated to the latest version (this broke c3 charts that require an
    older version)
  - added d3pie charts
  - custom dashboards can now have alarms for specific roles (all, none,
    one or more).
  - allow stacked charts to zoom vertically when dimensions are selected
  - netdata now has a global XSS protection
  - netdata now uses intersectionObserver when available - this improves the
    scrolling performance of the dashboard.
  - prevent date, time and units from wrapping at the charts legends
  - various units scaling improvements
  - added data-common-colors="NAME" chart option for custom dashboards
  - added wiki page for creating custom dashboards on Atlassian's Confluence
  - prevented a double click on the charts' toolbox to select the text of
    the buttons.
  - fixed the alignment of dashboard icons
  - added a simple js, called refresh-badges.js, to update badges on a
    custom web page
  * badges:
  - netdata badges can now be scaled
  * API:
  - added gtime parameter, for group time. This is used to request from
    netdata to return values in a different rate (i.e. gtime=60 on a X/sec
    dimension, will return X/min).
  - fixed a rounding bug in JSON generation
  - the dimensions= parameter now supports simple patterns and added option
    values match-ids and match-names to control which matches are executed
    for dimensions.
  * alarms:
  - "system.swap" alarms now send notifications with a 30 seconds delay,
    to work-around a kernel bug that incorrectly reports all swap as
    instantly used under containers
  - added alarm to predict the time a mount point will run out of inodes
  - added notifications
  - added available memory alarm
  - removed unsupported html tags from hipchat notifications.
  - pagerduty notifications have been modified to avoid incident duplication
  - alarm definitions can now use both chart IDs and chart names (prior to
    this version only chart IDs were allowed).
  - curl options (eg for disabling SSL certificates verification) for can now be defined in health_alarm_notify.conf.
  - netdata can now send notifications to IRC channels
  * backends:
  - on netdata masters, allow filtering the hosts that will be sent to
    backends with send hosts matching = * pattern.
  - improved connection error handling and added retries to allow netdata
    connect to certain backends that failed with EALREADY or EINPROGRESS.
  - json backends now receive host tags (the tags have to be formatted in a
    json friendly way)
  - re-worked the alarm that triggers when backend data are lost,
    to avoid flip-flops.
  - prometheus backends:
    + added URL option timestamps=yes|no to /api/v1/allmetrics to support
    prometheus Pushgateway
    + added netdata_info variable with the version of netdata
    + renamed netdata_host_tags to netdata_host_tags_info (the old exists
    but is deprecated and will be removed eventually)
    + when prometheus uses average metrics, netdata remembers the last
    access time the prometheus collected metrics, on a per host basis.
  * metrics streaming between netdata:
  - netdata masters and proxies now expose the version of the netdata
    collecting the metrics, not their own. So, now a netdata master shows
    on the dashboard and sends to backends the version of the netdata
    collecting the metrics
  - added stream.conf option multiple "connections = accept | deny" to allow
    or deny multiple connection for the same netdata host. The default
    remains "accept", but it is likely to be changed to no on future
  * other:
  - added global option gap when lost iterations to control the number of
    iterations that should be lost to show a gap on the charts.
  - various fixes/improvements related to netdata logs - the main change is
    that now netdata logs the thread name that logged the message, providing
    helpful insights about the thread that complained.
  - re-worked the exit procedure of netdata to allow it cleanup properly -
    sometimes netdata was deadlocked during exit, waiting forever - now
    netdata always exits promptly
  - fixed compilation on ancient gcc versions
  - netdata was always setting itself to the idle process scheduling
    priority, even when it was configured to do otherwise. Fixed it.
* Sun Dec 17 2017
- Update to v1.9.0
  * new features:
  - IP address ACLs
  - auto-scaling units (KB ? MB ? GB ? TB etc.)
  - dashboard snapshots for any timeframe/resolution
  - detection of TCP overflows and dropped connections
  - detection of redis background save failures
  - export dashboards to PDF
  - and alarm notifications
  - highlighting timeframes on all charts by holding Ctrl or Alt
  - monitoring of couchdb, powerdns, beanstalkd and dnsdist
  - monitoring of libvirt VMs
  - new alarms:
    1. too many tcp orphan sockets
    2. tcp memory that detects that the tcp stack is under memory pressure
    or close to giving memory errors
    3. too many tcp connections (for kernels that do not support dynamic
    allocation of connections)
  - timezone support
  - unit conversion (temperatures, time, etc.)
  * fixes/improvements:
  - better/faster dashboard scrolling
  - python.d.plugin rewritten
    + supports option autodetection_retry: SECONDS
    + the new URL service disables certificates checks by default,
    to allow self-signed certificates to work without configuration.
  - streaming:
    + netdata proxies with more than 100 slaves had a timing issue that
    caused them to crash randomly on slave reconnects. Parts of the code
    have been rewritten to get rid of the timing issue.
    + netdata slaves and proxies now have a protection that ensures they will
    never use 100% CPU, even if the master is misbehaving.
    + expired orphaned hosts are now removed from the my-netdata menu of the
    + streaming functions can now be monitored via access.log
    + streaming now transfers alarm variables too
  - web_log plugin
    + custom regex now supports parsing hostnames and IPs
    + now parses lines with error 408 (request timeout - these are a special
    case, since the request has not received by the web server, so the log
    line is incomplete)
    + now properly parses resp_length with value
  - disks under Linux are renamed using /dev/disk/by-label. An option has been
    added at netdata.conf to also allow renaming based on /dev/disk/by-id.
  - chrony is now disabled by default, because there have been reports that
    chronyc enters an infinite loop in CentOS and RHEL.
  - tomcat improvements to support flavors of the tomcat server
  - chart (the total system Disk I/O) is now calculated by
    aggregating the reads and writes of all physical disks. The previous chart (that is based on pgpgin and pgpgout from /proc/vmstat)
    is now named system.pgpgio. The key difference is that the new
    now sees ZFS I/O, and it also correctly and accurately sums the real disk
    bandwidth of RAID arrays.
  - chart (the total system network bandwidth) is now calculated
    by aggregating the bandwidth of all physical network interfaces and is
    common for both IPv4 and IPv6.
  - tc (QoS) charts now sort the dimensions on the legends, the same way tc
    reports them.
  - mysql (and mariadb) got new charts for galera replication
  - postgres versions <= 10 the WAL directory was named pg_xlog' and from 10
    upwards has been renamed to pg_wal
  - freeipmi.plugin got a command line option (can be given in netdata.conf)
    to ignore certain sensor IDs that are faulty.
  - minor openvpn_log, smartd, smartd_log, varnish, mdstat, dns_query_time,
    isc_dhcpd, freeradius and node.d.plugin fixes/improvements
  - netdata now supports multiple plugin directories. The setting is the same
    in netdata.conf, plugins directory = "DIRECTORY1" "DIRECTORY2" ...,
    up to 20 directories.
  - netdata now supports alarms variables. Each plugin can now define host
    global and chart local variables with static values that can be used in
    alarms' expressions.
  - dashboard:
    + hover selection of charts is now faster on all browsers
    + the dashboard is now fixed when a modal is open, preventing scrolling
    + the dashboard now uses fontawesome 5.0.1 for icons
    + chart names can now be searched with browser control-F
    + netdata now detects libvirt VM network interfaces and moves them to the
    VM section of the dashboard
    + now shows the context, resolution and plugin/module of each chart in
    + should now put a lot less CPU pressure on the browser when the page
    does not have focus
  - statsd:
    + metrics can now be added to statsd synthetic charts using patterns
    + dimensions added to statsd synthetic charts can automatically be renamed
    using a dictionary
    + timers and histograms now report zeros when nothing is collected
  - badges:
    + fixed a bug in netdata badges that was incorrectly matching zero values
    with the null color condition
    + added API option display_absolute to allow badges use the signed value
    for color evaluation, but present the absolute value
  - alarms/notifications:
    + warning emails sent by netdata are now a little bit more orange
    (they were a bit greenish)
    + fixed a bug in email notifications that was triggering a corrupted MIME
    match by anti-spam solutions
    + pushbullet notifications now track the devices, so that per-device
    filtering at pushbullet is possible. Also improved the formatting a bit.
    + correct priority of warnings for pushover notifications
    + alarms can now use variables like this:
    ${variable with spaces or +, -, *, / in it}
  - other:
    + access.log has been refactored to support monitoring all netdata
    + inodes monitoring is now by default disabled for mount points based on
    filesystems that do not have a maximum inode threshold (such as cephfs)
    + rabbitmq has been added to apps_groups.conf so that apps.plugin now
    monitors (cpu, memory, disk I/O, sockets, etc) rabbitmq instances
    + several email and log management apps have been added to email and logs
    targets of apps_groups.conf
    + ceph target added to apps_groups.conf to allow netdata to monitor Ceph
    + refactored several internal data collection plugins to eliminate a few
    hundreds of index lookups per second
    + netdata.conf settings that are loaded from disk, but were the same with
    the default ones, were generated commented when the server was asked to
    return its config. Now all loaded settings are generated uncommented.
    + netdata simple patterns can now extract the the wildcarded part of the
    string they match (used in statsd synthetic charts)
    + netdata simple patterns can allow escaping spaces by prefixing them
    with a backslash

* Tue Feb 23 2021 Mia Herkt <>
- Update to 1.29.3
  Release v1.29.3 is a patch release to improve the stability of the
  Netdata Agent.
  We discovered a bug that when proc.plugin attempts to collect the
  operstate parameter for a virtual network interface. If the chart
  is obsoleted, the Netdata Agent crashes.
  This release also contains additional bug fixes and improvements.
  Bug fixes
  * Fix proc.plugin to invalidate RRDSETVAR pointers on obsoletion.
* Thu Feb 18 2021 Mia Herkt <>
- Update to 1.29.2
  Release v1.29.2 is a patch release to improve the stability of the
  Netdata Agent.
  We discovered that an improvement introduced in v1.29.0 could
  inadvertently set all os_* host labels to unknown, which could
  affect users who leverage these host labels to organize their
  nodes, deploy health entities, or export metrics to external
  time-series databases. This bug has been fixed.

    was WARN/CRIT.
  * Reduce excessive logging in the ACLK.
- Changes in 1.29.1
  Release v1.29.1 is a hotfix release to address a crash in the
  Netdata Agent.
  A locking bug in one of the internal collectors in Netdata could
  cause it to crash during shutdown in a way that would result in the
  Netdata Agent taking an excessively long time to exit.
  Bug fixes
  * Fix crash during shutdown of cgroups internal plugin.
* Wed Feb 03 2021 Mia Herkt <>
- Update to 1.29.0 (go.d.plugin 0.27.0)
  The v1.29.0 release of the Netdata Agent is a maintenance release
  that brings incremental but necessary improvements that make your
  monitoring experience more robust. We've pushed improvements and
  bug fixes to the installation and update scripts, enriched our
  library of collectors, and focused on fixing bugs reported by the
  At a glance
  Netdata now collects and meaningfully organizes metrics from both
  the Couchbase JSON document database and the nginx-module-vts
  module for exposing metrics about NGINX virtual hosts.
  We've also migrated more collectors from Python to Go in our
  continued efforts to make data collection faster and more robust.
  The newest effort includes our Redis, Pika, and Energi Core Wallet
  On the dashboard, we improved the responsiveness of panning forward
  and backward through historical metrics data by preventing
  unnecessary updates and reducing the number of calls. The charts
  should also now immediately update when you stop panning.
  * Reduce the number of alarm updates on ACLK.
  * Remove unused entries from structures.
  * Improve the retry/backoff during claiming.
  * Support multiple chart label keys in data queries.
  * Truncate excessive information from titles for apps and
    cgroups collectors.
  * Use mguid instead of hostname in the ACLK collector list.
  * Cleanup and minor fixes to eBPF collector.
  * Add _is_k8s_node label to the host labels.
  * Move ACLK into a legacy subfolder.
  * Exclude autofs by default in the diskspace plugin.
  * Mark internal functions as static in health code.
  * Remove unused struct in health code.
  * Add support for per series styling for dygraphs.
  * Fix minor vulnerability alert by updating socket-io dependency.
  * Fix dygraph panning responsiveness, chart heights and
    performance improvements.
  * Make legend position configurable.
  * Add Go version of the redis collector.
  * Add Go version of the pika collector.
  * Add Go version of the energis collector.
  * Add a new nginxvts collector.
  * Add a new couchbase collector.
  * Add Traefik v2 to the prometheus collector default

  * Fix handling of TLS config so that cURL works in all cases.
  * Fix disconnect message sent via ACLK on agent shutdown
  * Fix prometheus remote write header
  * Fix values in Prometheus export for metrics, collected by the
    Prometheus collector
  * Fix handling spaces in labels values in the Prometheus
  * Fix mysql.slave_status alarm for go mysql collector
  * Make mdstat_mismatch_cnt alarm less strict
  * Dispatch cgroup discovery into another thread
  * Fix data source option for Prometheus web API in exporting
  * Fix anomalies collector custom model bug
  * Fix broken dbengine stress tests.
  * Fix segmentation fault in the agent
  * Fix memory allocation when computing standard deviation

- Update to v1.28
  Release v1.28.0 is a hotfix release to address a deadlock in the
  Netdata Agent. If the Agent-Cloud link (ACLK) connection drops and
  the Agent fails to queue an on_connect message, it also fails to

- Update to 1.31.0 (go.d.plugin 0.29.0)
  The v1.31.0 release of Netdata comes with re-packaged and
  redesigned elements of the dashboard to help you focus on your
  metrics, even more Linux kernel insights via eBPF, on-node machine
  learning to help you find anomalies, and much more.
  This release contains 10 new collectors, 54 improvements (7 in the
  dashboard), 31 documentation updates, and 29 bug fixes.
  At a glance
  We re-packaged and redesigned portions of the dashboard to improve
  the overall experience. Part of this effort is better handling of
  dashboard code during installation?anyone using third-party
  packages (such as the Netdata Homebrew formula) will start seeing
  new features and the new designs starting today. The timeframe
  picker has moved to the top panel, and just to its right are two
  counters with live CRITICAL and WARNING alarm statuses for your
  node. Click on either of these two open the alarms modal.
  We've also pushed a number of powerful new collectors, including
  directory cache monitoring via eBPF. By monitoring directory cache,
  developers and SREs alike can find opportunities to optimize memory
  usage and reduce disk-intensive operations.
  Our new Z-scores and changefinder collectors use machine learning
  to let you know, at a glance, when key metrics start to behave
  oddly. We'd love to get feedback on these sophisticated, subjective
  new brand of collectors!

- Update to 1.30.0 (go.d.plugin 0.28.1)
  The v1.30.0 release of Netdata completely replaces Google
  Analytics/GTM for product telemetry (disabled by default in
  openSUSE). We're also releasing the first changes in an upcoming
  overhaul to both our dashboard UI/UX and the suite of preconfigured
  alarms that comes with every installation.
  v1.30.0 contains 3 new collectors, 3 enhancements to notifications
  method, 38 improvements (13 in the dashboard), 16 documentation
  updates, and 17 bug fixes.
  At a glance
  The ACLK-NG is a much faster method of securely connecting a node
  to Netdata Cloud. In addition, there are no external dependencies
  to our custom libmosquitto and libwebsockets libraries, which means
  there's no more need to build these during installation.
  We replaced Google Analytics/GTM, which we used for collecting
  product telemetry, with a self-hosted instance of the open-source
  PostHog project. When sending statistics to PostHog, any fields
  that might contain identifiable information, such as an IP address
  or URL, are hardcoded. If you previously opted-out of anonymous
  statistics, this migration does not change your existing settings.
  * Add check for children connecting to a parent agent with an
    unsupported memory mode.
