I’ve been starting to set up a network of netdata instances, and I’m finding it generally excellent so far.
Something I’d really like to see is the fping responses graphed the way smokeping does, explanation here:
This view collapses what are 3 different graphs in netdata down to one graph which if you’ve got a lot of targets or a complicated network of targets is really useful.
The other thing smokeping can do that I haven’t seen netdata able to do is a single graph for a target containing the latency measurements from multiple different endpoints, so you can have a single graph with, e.g. a London server on it and have that graph show the latency from New York, LA, Auckland and Sydney in a single view.
The data to do this is all there, it’s “just” a case of how it’s rendered.
