Not sure if the right place but figured would post about using Netdata as a monitor and alert system. Beautiful front-end and extensive monitoring for free. Very helpful for seeing issues before they arise and pinpointing resource use issues.
- Add sudo user and change to him:
usermod -aG sudo <username>
su - <username>
- Install Netdata
sudo apt-get install netdata
- Change Bind IP so can access
sudo nano /etc/netdata/netdata.conf
bind socket to IP = 192.168.0.234
bind socket to IP = <your.server.ip>
sudo systemctl restart netdata
Netdata listens on port 19999, by default that port should be closed on a GP server so we need to allow access to our IP:
sudo ufw allow from <your.ip.here> to any port 19999
You should now be able to load the GUI at http://your.server.ip:19999
I guess this is also kind of a feature request as it would be great to have this by default on GP servers. Monit is great for monitoring services and restarting if a condition is met, but for getting an overview quickly and drilling down to issues netdata is really amazing.
Here is what you should be greeted with when you load the GUI
