update_every stuck at 1s, ignored for go.d.plugin for apache

Suggested template:


I see the go.d plugin for apache is hitting the URL HTTP://localhost/server-status?auto every 1 second, as is the default. I’ve updated the netdata global config to use “update every = 10” in netdata.config, and also added “update_every: 10” in /opt/netdata/usr/lib/netdata/conf.d/go.d/apache.conf. Neither change appears to take effect. I completely restarted the netdata service after each change.

Relevant docs you followed/actions you took to solve the issue

I researched the community forum and the netdata docs, none of which provided a satisfactory answer
I also ran the collector in debug mode, and observed the collection triggering every 1 second. The apache access_log also shows the status URL being hit every 1 second.

Environment/Browser/Agent’s version etc

I am running an Amazon Linux 2 server in AWS. go.d.plugin, version:

What I expected to happen

I expecting the plug to hit the URL every 10 seconds, as configured.

SOLVED: After changing the correct config file, it now appears to be working properly.

I had re-installed the netdata agent using a static build, so I initially changed /etc/netdata/netdata.conf instead of /opt/netdata/etc/netdata/netdata.conf.

Rookie error, I guess.
