NetData is a real-time system monitor great for visualizing performance data. Instances of netdata run independently on monitored systems. The results can be accessed remotely and grouped into a single dashboard view, making this tool highly scalable.

Updating NetData

The process for updating netdatainstall via git is similar to the installation process.

Or a quick script, in case you need to update netdata automatically or on multiple servers.
