Netdata still running even when systemctl service is masked
Relevant docs you followed/actions you took to solve the issue
Environment/Browser/Agent’s version etc
On Ubuntu (latest version of the agent)
What I expected to happen
Netdata shouldn’t be running
I was trying to uninstall (wiped the dirs after) and installed the latest version of netdata
However, I noticed that the netdata installer script installed netdata into /opt/netdata instead. And systemctl service is masked, but the newly installed netdata agent is still accessible.
So now how can I stop the running netdata (the one that’s installed in /opt/netdata dir) properly?
And why during the uninstall, the netdata.service file is not removed? Or is this normal and has to be manually removed by me?
What version of Ubuntu are you running? In some cases of older Ubuntu’s, the installer might pick a static install to use (what you see in
/opt/netdata) if there are no packages for this distribution.
The static install should be controllable from the service file. I would guess in this case that there was something left over from the uninstall. Did you also use the kickstart script the first time you installed netdata?
Ubuntu Jammy (Ubuntu 22.04)
Service file? Where is it located?
Yes, installed through kickstarter script (stable channel with no updates). Uninstall was done using the uninstall script.
