This is for Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS on x86_64 and also aarch64.
From reading the docs I understand that by default the agent is set to auto-update.
I also believe that this is done by executing the script located at:
which I believe is a link to:
And then I’m assuming that there must be a cronjob to do the actual execution.
However, I can’t seem to find the cronjob and my agents are not getting updated.
When I check the crontab for the netdata user ( “sudo crontab -u netdata -e”), I find nothing configured and the same for the root user; for completeness there is nothing for netdata in my user’s crontab.
So where should the job exist? Do I need to open a bug for this?
What I expected to happen
I would expect a cronjob in the crontab for the netdata user (or perhaps root).
