How do I rename a node?

A node’s name cannot be changed from within Netdata Cloud.

To change the name that appears in Netdata Cloud, you can either change the node’s hostname, or you can edit that node’s netdata.conf file and change the hostname setting.

Once finished, restart the node with sudo systemctl netdata restart , or the appropriate method for your system, to see the changed name reflected in Netdata Cloud.

Unfortunately for me, someone who wants to learn how to rename a Netdata node, all the links pointing to GitHub pages where I might learn how, are all failing with a 404 error.

Hey @handygadget,

I am so sorry for this. I edited the links to the correct url.

Thank you for the feedback :slight_smile:
