I just added 9 nodes in 2 warrooms and I’m impressed with netdata so far.
I had two problems adding one node (Azure Ubuntu 20.04.4 VM. Other Azure Ubuntu VM’s with this version worked, though I wonder if this was an older one that was originally Ubuntu 16.):
- The kickstart script couldn’t create directories in /tmp, or something, so I did
TMPDIR=/root/tmp /tmp/netdata-kickstart.sh ...and it got past this error:
[/tmp/netdata-kickstart-pdusNtbsQs]# curl --fail -q -sSL --connect-timeout 10 --retry 3 --output /tmp/netdata-kickstart-pdusNtbsQs/netdata-repo-edge_1-1_all.deb https://packagecloud.io/netdata/netdata-repoconfig/packages/ubuntu/focal/netdata-repo-edge_1-1_all.deb/download.deb curl: (23) Failure writing output to destination FAILED
- Second problem I encountered: Claiming failed with an “Unknown HTTP error message” On a whim, I did
mv /snap/bin/curl /snap/bin/curl-disabledand it used wget instead and worked.
... Proxy: Netdata user: netdata Connection attempt 1 successful Failed to claim node with the following error message:"Unknown HTTP error message" FAILED
(Not sure if this is relevant: I first tried with Ubuntu 18, and sysctl fs.protected_regular showing 0.
Then I upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04.4 and it shows fs.protected_regular = 2 and still had the problem until my workarounds above.)
To clarify, I’m good now – I just thought I’d pass on what I learned.
