Arch Linux - installed from kickstart script after purging old (working) netdata instance from AURepo
Hi. When I try to enable nvidia-smi collection in python.d.conf , none of the python collectors work. When nvidia-smi is disabled I can view HDD Temp and Sensors. When nvidia-smi is enabled, nvidia-smi does not run and HDD Temp and Sensors also do not run.
I would expect this to work. Something that may be important is that when I try to use edit-config to edit nvidia-smi.conf I am not presented with a file. So I made the file myself.
I don’t think my homemade file is a problem bc it came from my old working install, but I do think that possible the lack of auto-complete with the stock filenames could be relevant to the problem I’m having. Is this a sign of something wrong with my install?
I’ve always struggled with nvidia-smi on netdata for some reason, but this time I’ve tried everything I know and can’t get it to work. I recently installed the newest version of Netdata from the kickscript on a pi, and then I wanted all the newest on my main arch server - which I wasn’t getting on my couple-year-old netdata instance from the AURepos. So I purged the package and then manually renamed all of the directories that were leftover, hoping the script would install everything fresh.
I have stream collecting and everything else working, but I can’t get nvidia-smi to play nice. Any ideas?
Should we start with trying to run the plugin from cli? I have verified that netdata can execute nvidia-smi. When i look at error logs, I see: “prometheus[nvidia_smi_exporter_local] Get “http://127.0.0.1:9454/metrics”: dial tcp 127.0.0.1:9454: connect: connection refused”
Which is odd because I’ve never installed prometheus. ?
