Labeling, renaming or tagging nodes

I have nodes with identical names, and I’m having a hard time determining which one is which.
It would be nice to have an option to customize their names, or add tags to them, or both.

Thoughts?

@Rybue, I followed the labels link you shared above and created labels for my notes. Now I wonder if the labels added can be shown on cloud. Can you please advise?

Hello @Rybue ,

Thank you very much for the support you have given to our user since you joined our community.

@rybue to the rescue, once more!

@Rybue thanks

Hi @disiu!

You could change name of the node for netdata, by editing /etc/netdata/netdata.conf (or whenever configuration for your installation reside) and uncomenting line:

hostname = <name_of_the_node>

In the same config file you could also add/update labels for metrics - https://learn.netdata.cloud/guides/using-host-labels
