I have reviewed the python plugin info already. Looks straight forward enough
Now I just have to find a rainy day to get going…
Thanks a lot for your offer, @OdysLam. Unfortunately, Go is not my cup of tea. Every time I look at some code I do not find it intuitive.
That being said, I am happy to look into a Python based solution with some pointers from @andrewm4894 (thanks a lot)! I am currently working on some final pieces for my back-up concept and will then try to dive into this connector to get the monitoring going.
I just checked the repository of available connectors at https://learn.netdata.cloud/docs/agent/collectors/collectors but it looks like there is none for monitoring backups. Am I missing something? Is this not a good use case?
I was hoping to find a good example (ideally in Python) that I could use for inspiration.
I am looking for some collector magic:
I have an application (
restic backup service) which writes log files in json format. Is there a collector out there that I can use to parse this log file and extract the status to be sent to netdata? I want to keep track of the status of my last backup, whether it took place within a reasonable time period and whether its status was
Following the blog post about the v1.24 release, I am trying to update my nodes, however both the web ui and the updater script report that the currently installed 1.23.x snapshot version is still the most current one available:

Am I missing something? The original installation was without any additional command line arguments, i.e. no
