Import Google Colab instance as node

Is it possible to import a Google Colab instance as node? I’ve run the famous wget command for importing the node and by looking at the console output everything is ok, unfortunately when I visit the netdata webpage for monitoring the node is marked as “Unseen” and no metrics are showed.

I really need help, thanks :slight_smile:

@Lorenzo_Amata Not to worry, this is definitely possible :grinning:

All you need to do is restart the netdata service after it gets installed from the kickstart wget command.

!service netdata restart

The node should become live almost immediately after the restart completes.


Thanks, now it works!! :smiley:

@Shyam maybe we should do a little blog post about how to use netdata with google colab perhaps?

Yes, we mosdef should! :grin:
