Can I configure Netdata with item-level overrides to the default config files rather than copying the entire config file and modifying it?
For example, if I want to disable the python mysql plugin then I run
./edit-config python.d.conf which copies /usr/lib/netdata/conf.d/python.d.conf to /etc/netdata and opens it in vim. I find the line, change it and save the file.
But from now on I am responsible for this 111 line config file. When in future a new version of Netdata comes with changes in python.d.conf I guess I will have to merge the changes manually.
I would prefer to only keep the differences in my configs. I tried creating a config file /etc/netdata/python.d.conf with one line in it
mysql: no but this disabled python.d. So I guess it’s not so simple.
