What is Cloud/Agent?
I have installed the Agent on my ubuntu Server, now I’d like to add more devices to it and start managing the whole company, What do I have to do next? What is the cloud different from the Agent? Was not the agent supposed to be the payload i deploy in any device i need my server to see? I am confused in here, sorry guys
I guess my question here is How can I manage more Netdata servers and keep it in one dashboard for access, or I cannot?
I also checked it is not possible to manage a Windows Server for instance, is it?
Welcome to our forums! These are all great questions, so let’s try to answer them all:
- You install the agent on all the machines that you want to monitor. Then you create a Netdata Cloud account and you claim your nodes.
- You create your own dashboards for your nodes, so you can get any number of charts from any node in one dashboard.
- You can monitor a windows machine using the windows_exporter, we have detailed documentation about it
@OdysLam Amazing answers! I am in the process of creating a NetData Cloud account, I have no idea What to do for get approved, I have already selected Sign in and chosen my Work E-mail.
Sorry for getting back to you so late, did you manage to create an account ? We are working hard on a number of features, and the sign-in story is high on a priority!
If you have any question, please shoot away.
@Nocera please have in mind that we are working on a new Cloud Overview screen that will let users have a lot of ready made ready made composite charts with the use of metrics from nodes within a War Room. Feel free to organize your nodes in War Rooms in the meanwhile.
