Currently, the agent CLI pipe is hardcoded to
/tmp/netdata-ipc. However, if you want to make the process a little more secure by giving it a private /tmp via systemd,
netdatacli can no longer communicate with it. On NixOS, such sockets are generally under
So I’d like to request that the socket path be configurable, even if it’s just at compile time, so that any other programs that would want to communicate with the netdata know that the socket path is not fixed.
