Netdata Cloud on OpenWrt won't work


I’m new to Netdata, i created a account for the Netdata Cloud to Monitor all my devices there, also I installed the netdata package for OpenWrt from their repo that worked, it also runs local on my router but I can’t connect to the Cloud service, I try it with the following command:

netdata  -W "claim -token=mytoken -rooms=myroomtoken -url="

but I only get this as output:

2021-06-07 17:34:55: netdata INFO  : MAIN : CONFIG: cannot load cloud config '/var/lib/netdata/cloud.d/cloud.conf'. Running with internal defaults.
2021-06-07 17:34:55: netdata INFO  : MAIN : SIGNAL: Not enabling reaper

OpenWrt Version: 21.02.0-rc2, r16122-c2139eef27
Netdata Version:

root@OpenWrt:~# netdata -v
netdata v1.29.3

Hopefully anyone could help me :slight_smile:

@lucki1000 We have to check if the package you installed is with cloud support. The version seems to be quite old. For both of that we would have to contact whoever maintains netdata package for OpenWRT.

What does netdata -W buildinfo say?

@lucki1000 seems that whoever maintains the netdata openwrt package disables the cloud support functionality on purpose as evidenced by packages/Makefile at master · openwrt/packages · GitHub (line that says --disable-cloud).

Such an agent cannot technically connect to cloud :frowning: . We would have to go in contact with maintainer of that package to ask him why he decided to do so. If the reason is technical I am willing to cooperate with them to help them make it work.

Maybe if you open the issue on their repo and link it here it will help move things forward (and at least show them there is user interest of using that functionality).

Another option would be building netdata yourself but not sure how difficult that is to do for OpenWRT.

Thanks for your respond, I’ve created a issue on this repo, should I mark your Answer as solution?
