Hello @chris-pollock ,
I observed that according your logs, Netdata was only a restart:
2020-10-13 08:30:46: netdata INFO : MAIN : EXIT: all done - netdata is now exiting - bye bye...
2020-10-13 08:30:56: netdata INFO : MAIN : resources control: allowed file descriptors: soft = 1024, max = 524288
As @andrewm4894 said Netdata update automatically when it is using
stable, but the installer only can add the cron task when it is installed as
If you added the next line direct for cron:
bash <(curl -Ss https://my-netdata.io/kickstart.sh)
it had problems to understand the command and probably you would not have problems if this text was written inside a bash script file, for example,
/usr/bin/my_own_update and after this you could add this bash script for cron. This script would need to have execution permission.
