Metric Correlations on Agent - beta launch!!!

Hello all!

I just wanted to make a post to let any early adopters know that we have recently implemented the existing Metric Correlations (MC) capabilities within the agent itself as opposed to via the existing cloud service.

The aim here is to make the MC feature a lot faster by just doing the computation in the agent as opposed to sending the data to a cloud service as is the current approach.

Getting Started

Basically, you just need to set enabled metric correlations to yes in the [global] section your netdata.conf:

    enable metric correlations = yes

Here is a quick video example showing this feature and discussing it a little.

Will be a more formal launch coming soon. But just wanted to share as i’ll be enabling this on all my nodes for sure :slight_smile:

p.s. if you want to geek out here is the PR where you can see the code and pain that our new resident kolmogorov smirnov expert @Manolis_Vasilakis went though to implement this on the agent, from scratch, in C - all to make our lives a little easier - Thank you Manolis!!!

MC all the things!!!
