Thu Dec 23 01:28:12 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to 1.32.1 (go.d.plugin 0.31.0)
Bug fixes
  * Use the chart id instead of chart name in response to incoming
    cloud context queries
  * Fix used_swap alarm calculation
  * Initialize enabled parameter to 1 in AlarmLogHealth message
- Changes in 1.32.0:
New Cloud backend and Agent communication protocol
This Agent release supports our new Cloud backend. From here, we
will be offering much faster and simpler communication, reliable
alerts and exchange of metadata, and first-time support for the
parent-child relationship of Netdata agents. This is the first
Agent release that allows Netdata Cloud to use the Netdata Agent as
a distributed time-series database that supports replication and
query routing, for every metric!

eBPF latency monitoring, container monitoring, and more
We use eBPF to monitor all running processes, without the
cooperation of the processes and without sniffing data traffic.
This new release includes 13 new eBPF monitoring features,
including I/O latency, BTRFS, EXT4, NFS, XFS and ZFS latencies,
IRQs latencies, extended swap monitoring, and more.

Machine learning (ML) powered anomaly detection
​This release links Netdata Agent with dlib, the popular C++
machine learning algorithms library, which we use to automatically
detect anomalies out-of-the-box, at the edge! Once enabled, Netdata
trains an ML model for every metric, which is then used to detect
outliers in real-time. The resulting "anomaly bit" (where 0=normal,
1=anomalous) associated with each database entry is stored
alongside the raw metric value with zero additional storage
overhead! This feature is still in development, so it is disabled
by default. If you would like to test it and provide feedback, you
can go to the new [ml] section in netdata.conf and set enabled=yes
to turn on anomaly detection. After restarting Netdata, you should
see the Anomaly Detection menu with charts highlighting the overall
number and percent of anomalous metrics on your node. This can be a
very useful single number summary of the state of your node.

New timezone selector and time controls in the user interface
We implemented a new timezone picker and time controls to enhance
administrative abilities in the dashboard.

- Update to 1.31.0 (go.d.plugin 0.29.0)
The v1.31.0 release of Netdata comes with re-packaged and
redesigned elements of the dashboard to help you focus on your
metrics, even more Linux kernel insights via eBPF, on-node machine
learning to help you find anomalies, and much more.

This release contains 10 new collectors, 54 improvements (7 in the
dashboard), 31 documentation updates, and 29 bug fixes.

At a glance

We re-packaged and redesigned portions of the dashboard to improve
the overall experience. Part of this effort is better handling of
dashboard code during installation—anyone using third-party
packages (such as the Netdata Homebrew formula) will start seeing
new features and the new designs starting today. The timeframe
picker has moved to the top panel, and just to its right are two
counters with live CRITICAL and WARNING alarm statuses for your
node. Click on either of these two open the alarms modal.

We've also pushed a number of powerful new collectors, including
directory cache monitoring via eBPF. By monitoring directory cache,
developers and SREs alike can find opportunities to optimize memory
usage and reduce disk-intensive operations.

Our new Z-scores and changefinder collectors use machine learning
to let you know, at a glance, when key metrics start to behave
oddly. We'd love to get feedback on these sophisticated, subjective
new brand of collectors!

- Update to 1.30.0 (go.d.plugin 0.28.1)
The v1.30.0 release of Netdata completely replaces Google
Analytics/GTM for product telemetry (disabled by default in
openSUSE). We're also releasing the first changes in an upcoming
overhaul to both our dashboard UI/UX and the suite of preconfigured
alarms that comes with every installation.

v1.30.0 contains 3 new collectors, 3 enhancements to notifications
method, 38 improvements (13 in the dashboard), 16 documentation
updates, and 17 bug fixes.

At a glance

The ACLK-NG is a much faster method of securely connecting a node
to Netdata Cloud. In addition, there are no external dependencies
to our custom libmosquitto and libwebsockets libraries, which means
there's no more need to build these during installation.

We replaced Google Analytics/GTM, which we used for collecting
product telemetry, with a self-hosted instance of the open-source
PostHog project. When sending statistics to PostHog, any fields
that might contain identifiable information, such as an IP address
or URL, are hardcoded. If you previously opted-out of anonymous
statistics, this migration does not change your existing settings.

  * Add check for children connecting to a parent agent with an
    unsupported memory mode.
  * Add lock check to avoid shutdown when compiled with internal
    and locking checks.
  * Update chart's metadata in database when it already exists
    during creation.

- Changes in 1.29.1
Release v1.29.1 is a hotfix release to address a crash in the
Netdata Agent.

A locking bug in one of the internal collectors in Netdata could
cause it to crash during shutdown in a way that would result in the
Netdata Agent taking an excessively long time to exit.

Bug fixes
  * Fix crash during shutdown of cgroups internal plugin.

- Update to 1.29.0 (go.d.plugin 0.27.0)
The v1.29.0 release of the Netdata Agent is a maintenance release
that brings incremental but necessary improvements that make your
monitoring experience more robust. We've pushed improvements and
bug fixes to the installation and update scripts, enriched our
library of collectors, and focused on fixing bugs reported by the

At a glance

Netdata now collects and meaningfully organizes metrics from both
the Couchbase JSON document database and the nginx-module-vts
module for exposing metrics about NGINX virtual hosts.

We've also migrated more collectors from Python to Go in our
continued efforts to make data collection faster and more robust.
The newest effort includes our Redis, Pika, and Energi Core Wallet

On the dashboard, we improved the responsiveness of panning forward
and backward through historical metrics data by preventing
unnecessary updates and reducing the number of calls. The charts
should also now immediately update when you stop panning.

- Update to v1.28
Release v1.28.0 is a hotfix release to address a deadlock in the
Netdata Agent. If the Agent-Cloud link (ACLK) connection drops and
the Agent fails to queue an on_connect message, it also fails to
properly release a lock in the web server thread.

Fri May  3 15:08:20 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to v1.14.0
The release introduces major additions to Kubernetes monitoring,
with tens of new charts for Kubelet, kube-proxy and coredns
metrics, as well as significant improvements to the netdata
helm chart.

Two new collectors were added, to monitor Docker hub and Docker
engine metrics.

Finally, v1.14 adds support for version 2 cgroups, OpenLDAP
over TLS, NVIDIA SMI free and per process memory and configurable
syslog facilities.

  Bug Fixes:
  * Fixed problem autodetecting failed jobs in python.d plugin.
    It now properly restarts jobs that are being rechecked,
    as soon as they are able to run.
  * CouchdDB monitoring would stop sometimes with an exception.
    Fixed the unhandled exception causing the issue.
  * The netdata api deliberately returned http error 400 when
    netdata ran in memory mode none. Modified the behavior to
    return responses, regardless of the memory mode
  * The python.d plugin sometimes does not receive SIGTERM when
    netdata exits, resulting in zombie processes. Added a heartbeat
    so that the process can exit on SIGPIPE.
  * The new SMS Server Tools notifications did not handle errors
    well, resulting in cryptic error messages.
    Improved error handling.
  * Fix segmentation fault in streaming, when two dimensions had
    similar names.
  * Kubernetes Helm Chart: Fixed incorrect use of namespaces in
    ServiceAccount and ClusterRoleBinding RBAC fixes.
  * Elastic search: The option to enable HTTPS was not included in
    the config file, giving the erroneous impression that HTTPS was
    not supported. The option was added.
  * RocketChat notifications were not being sent properly.
    Added default recipients for roles in the health alarm
    notification configuration.

  * go.d.plugin v0.4.0 : Docker Hub and k8s coredns collectors,
    springboot2 URI filters support.
  * go.d.plugin v0.3.1 : Add default job to run k8s_kubelet.conf,
    k8s_kubeproxy, activemq modules

    collectors. x509check module reading certs from file support
  * Added unified cgroup support that includes v2 cgroups
  * Disk stats: Added preferred disk id pattern, so that users can
    see the id they prefer, when multiple ids appear for the same
  * NVIDIA SMI: Added memory free and per process memory usage
    charts to the collector
  * OpenLDAP: Added TLS support, to allow monitoring of LDAPS.
  * PHP-FPM: Add health check to raise alarms when the phpfm server
    is unreachable
  * PostgreSQL: Our configuration options to connect to a DB did
    not support all possible option. Added option to connect to a
    PostreSQL instance by defining a connection string (URI).
  * python.d.plugin: There was no way to delete obsolete dimensions
    in charts created by the python.d plugin. The plugin can now
    delete dimension at runtime.
  * netdata supports sending its logs to Syslog, but the facility
    was hard-coded. We now support configurable Syslog facilities
    in netdata.conf.
  * Kubernetes Helm Chart improvements:
    + Added serviceName in statefulset spec to align with the k8s
    + Added preStart command to persist slave machine GUIDs,
      so that pod deletion/addition during upgrades doesn't lose
      the slave history.
    + Disabled non-essential master netdata collector plugins to
      avoid duplicate data
    + Added preStop command to wait for netdata to exit gracefully
      before removing the container
    + Extended configuration file support to provide more control
      from the helm command line
    + Added option to disable Role-based access control
    + Added liveness and readiness probes.

- Update to v1.13.0
  netdata has taken the first step into the world of Kubernetes,
  with a beta version of a Helm chart for deployment to a k8s
  cluster and proper naming of the cgroup containers.
  We have big plans for Kubernetes, so stay tuned!

  A major refactoring of the python.d plugin has resulted in a
  dramatic decrease of the required memory, making netdata even
  more resource efficient.

  We also added charts for IPC shared memory segments and total
  memory used.

- Update to v1.12.0
  Key improvements:
  * Introducing, the free netdata service for all
    netdata users
  * High performance plugins with go.d.plugin (data collection
    orchestrator written in Go)
  * 7 new data collectors and 11 rewrites of existing data
    collectors for improved performance
  * A new management API for all netdata servers
  * Bind different functions of the netdata APIs to different ports

  Management API:
  Netdata now has a management API. We plan to provide a full set
  of configuration commands using this API.
  In this release, the management API supports disabling or
  silencing alarms during maintenance periods.
  For more information about the management API, check

  Anonymous statistics:
  Anonymous usage information can be collected and sent to Google
  Analytics. This functionality is disabled by default in openSUSE.
  Remove /etc/netdata/.opt-out-from-anonymous-statistics to enable.

  The statistics calculated from this information will be used for:
  1. Quality assurance, to help us understand if netdata behaves as
     expected and help us identify repeating issues for certain
     distributions or environment.
  2. Usage statistics, to help us focus on the parts of netdata
     that are used the most, or help us identify the extend our
     development decisions influence the community.

  Information is sent to Netdata via two different channels:
  * Google Tag Manager is used when an agent's dashboard is
  * The script is executed by the Netdata
    daemon, when Netdata starts, stops cleanly, or fails.

  Both methods are controlled via the same opt-out mechanism.

  Data collection:
  This release introduces a new Go plugin orchestrator.
  This plugin has its own github repo
  ( It is open-source,
  using the same license and we welcome contributions.
  The orchestrator can also be used to build custom data collection
  plugins written in Go. We have used the orchestrator to write
  many new Go plugins in our go.d plugin github repo.
  For more information, check

  New data collectors:
  * Activemq (Go)
  * Consul (Go)
  * Lighttpd2 (Go)
  * Solr (Go)
  * Springboot2 (Go)
  * mdstat - nonredundant arrays (C)
  * CUPS printing system (C)

  High performance versions of older data collectors:
  * apache (Go)
  * dns_query (Go)
  * Freeradius (Go)
  * Httpcheck (Go)
  * Lighttpd (Go)
  * Portcheck (Go)
  * Nginx (Go)
  * cpufreq (C)
  * cpuidle (C)
  * mdstat (C)
  * power supply (C)

  Other improved data collectors:
  * Fix the python plugin clock (collectors falling behind).
  * adaptec_raid: add to python.d.conf.
  * apcupsd: Detect if UPS is online.
  * apps: Fix process statistics collection for FreeBSD.
  * apps: Properly lookup docker container name when running in ECS
  * fail2ban: Add 'Restore Ban' action.
  * go_expavar: Don't check for duplicate expvars.
  * hddtemp: Don't use disk model as dim name.
  * megacli: add to python.d.conf.
  * nvidia_smi: handle N/A values.
  * postgres: Fix integer out of range error on Postgres 11,
    fix locks count.
  * proc: Don't show zero charts for ZFS filesystem.
  * proc; Fix cached memory calculation.
  * sensors: Don't ignore 0 RPM fans on start.
  * smartd_log: check() unhandled exception: list index out of
  * SNMP: Gracefully ignore the offset if the value is not a number

  Health Monitoring:
  * Add Prowl notifications for iOS users.
  * Show count of active alarms per state in email notifications.
  * Show evaluated expression and expression variable values in
    email notifications.
  * Improve support for slack recipients (channels/users).
  * Custom notifications: Fix bug with alarm role recipients.

  * Server filtering in my-netdata menu when signed in to
  * All units are now IEC-compliant abbreviations (KiB, MiB etc.).
  * GUI: Make entire row clickable in the registry menu showing
    the list of servers.

  * Do not report stale metrics to prometheus.

  * Treat DT_UNKNOWN files as regular files.
  * API: Stricter rules for URL separators.
- Update to v1.11.1
  Improved internal database:
  Overflown incremental values (counters) do not show a zero point
  at the charts. Netdata detects the width (8bit, 16bit, 32bit,
  64bit) of each counter and properly calculates the delta when
  the counter overflows.

  The internal database format has been extended to support values
  above 64bit.

  New data collection plugins:
  * openldap, to collect performance statistics from OpenLDAP
  * tor, to collect traffic statistics from Tor.
  * nvidia_smi to monitor NVIDIA GPUs.

  Improved data collection plugins:
  * BUG FIX: network interface names with colon (:) in them were
    incorrectly parsed and resulted in faulty data collection
  * BUG FIX: smartd_log has been refactored, has better python v2
    compatibility, and now supports SCSI smart attributes
  * cpufreq has been re-written in C - since this module if common,
    we decided to convert to an internal plugin to lower the
    pressure on the python ones. There are a few more that will be
    transitioned to C in the next release.
  * BUG FIX: sensors got some compatibility fixes and improved
    handling for lm-sensors errors.

  Health monitoring:
  * BUG FIX: max network interface speed data collection was
    faulty, which resulted in false-positive alarms on systems with
    multiple interfaces using different speeds (the speed of the
    first network interface was used for all network interfaces).
    Now the interface speed is shown as a badge.
  * notifications got a few improvements
  * BUG FIX: conntrack_max alarm has been restored (was not working
    due to an invalid variable name referenced)

  Registry (my-netdata menu):
  * It has been refactored a bit to reveal the URLs known for each
    node and now it supports deleting individual URLs.
- Update to 1.11.0
  * Stock config files are now in /usr/lib/netdata; use the
    /etc/netdata/edit-config script to copy and edit them.
  * The query engine of netdata has been re-written to support
    query plugins. We have already added the following algorithms
    that are available for alarm, charts and badges:
    + stddev, for calculating the standard deviation on any
    + ses or ema or ewma, for calculating the exponential weighted
      moving average, or single/simple exponential smoothing on
      any time-frame.
    + des, for calculating the double exponential smoothing on any
    + cv or rsd, for calculating the coefficient of variation for
      any time-frame.

  Fixed security issues:
  * CVE-2018-18836 Fixed JSON Header Injection (an attacker could
    send \n encoded in the request to inject a JSON fragment into
    the response). boo#1139094
  * CVE-2018-18837 Fixed HTTP Header Injection (an attacker could
    send \n encoded in the request to inject an HTTP header into
    the response). boo#1139095
  * CVE-2018-18838 Fixed LOG Injection (an attacker could send \n
    encoded in the request to inject a log line at access.log).
  * CVE-2018-18839 Not fixed Full Path Disclosure, since these are
    intended (netdata reports the absolute filename of web files,
    alarm config files and alarm handlers).
  * Fixed Privilege Escalation by manipulating apps.plugin or
    cgroup-network error handling.
  * Fixed LOG injection (by sending URLs with \n in them).

  New data collection modules:
  * rethinkdbs for monitoring RethinkDB performance
  * proxysql for monitoring ProxySQL performance
  * litespeed for monitoring LiteSpeed web server performance.
  * uwsgi for monitoring uWSGI performance
  * unbound for monitoring the performance of Unbound DNS servers.
  * powerdns for monitoring the performance of PowerDNS servers.
  * dockerd for monitoring the health of dockerd
  * puppet for monitoring Puppet Server and Puppet DB.
  * logind for monitoring the number of active users.
  * adaptec_raid and megacli for monitoring the relevant raid
  * spigotmc for monitoring minecraft server statistics
  * boinc for monitoring Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network
    Computing clients.
  * w1sensor for monitoring multiple 1-Wire temperature sensors.
  * monit for collecting process, host, filesystem, etc checks
    from monit.
  * linux_power_supplies for monitoring Linux Power Supplies

  Data collection orchestrators changes:
  * node.d.plugin does not use the js command any more.
  * python.d.plugin now uses monotonic clocks. There was a
    discrepancy in clocks used in netdata that resulted in a shift
    in time of python module after some time (it was missing 1 sec
    per day).
  * added MySQLService for quickly adding plugins using mysql
  * URLService now supports self-signed certificates and supports
    custom client certificates.
  * all python.d.plugin modules that require sudo to collect
    metrics, are now disabled by default, to avoid security alarms
    on installations that do not need them.

  Improved data collection modules:
  * apps.plugin now detects changes in process file descriptors,
    also fixed a couple of memory leaks. Its default configuration
    has been enriched significantly, especially for IoT.
  * freeipmi.plugin now supports option ignore-status to ignore
    the status reported by given sensors.

  * statsd.plugin (for collecting custom APM metrics)
    + The charting thread has been optimized for lowering its CPU
      consumption when several millions of metrics are collected.
    + sets now report zeros instead of gaps when no data are
    + histograms and timers have been optimized for lowering their
      CPU consumption to support several thousands of such metrics
      are collected.
    + histograms had wrong sampling rate calculations.
    + gauges now ignore sampling rate when no sign is included in
      the value.
    + the minimum sampling rate supported is now 0.001.
    + netdata statsd is now drop-in replacement for datadog statsd
      (although statsd tags are currently ignored by netdata).

  * proc.plugin (Linux, system monitoring)
    + Unused interrupts and softirqs are not used in charts
      (this saves quite some processing power and memory on systems
      with dozens of CPU cores).
    + fixed /proc/net/snmp parsing of IcmpMsg lines that failed on
      a few systems.
    + Veritas Volume Manager disks are now recognized and named
    + Now netdata collects TcpExtTCPReqQFullDrop and re-organizes
      metrics in charts to properly monitor the TCP SYN queue and
      the TCP Accept queue of the kernel.
    + Many charts that were previously reported as IPv4, were
      actually reflecting metrics for both IPv4 and IPv6.
      They have been renamed to ip.*.
    + netdata now monitors SCTP.
    + Fixed BTRFS over BCACHE sector size detection.
    + BCACHE data collection is now faster.
    + /proc/interrupts and /proc/softirqs parsing fixes.

  * diskspace.plugin (Linux, disk space usage monitoring)
    + It does not stat() excluded mount points any more (it was
      interfering with kerberos authenticated mount points).
    + several filesystems are now by default excluded from
      disk-space monitoring, to avoid breaking suspend on

  * python.d.plugin PYTHON modules (applications monitoring)
    + web_log module now supports virtual hosts, reports http/https
      metrics, support squid logs
    + nginx_plus module now handles non-continuous peer IDs
    + ipfs module is optimized, the use of its Pin API is now
      disabled by default and can enabled with a netdata module
      option (using the IPFS Pin API increases the load on the
      IPFS server).
    + fail2ban module now supports IPv6 too.
    + ceph module now checks permissions and properly reports
    + elasticsearch module got better error handling
    + nginx_plus module now uses upstream ip:port instead of
      transient id to identify dimensions.
    + redis, now it supports Pika, collects evited keys, fixes
      authentication issues reported and improves exception
    + beanstalk, bug fix for yaml config loading.
    + mysql, the % of active connections is now monitored,
      query types are also charted.
    + varnish, now it supports versions above 5.0.0
    + couchdb
    + phpfpm, now supports IPv6 too.
    + apache, now supports IPv6 too.
    + icecast
    + mongodb, added support for connect URIs
    + postgress
    + elasticsearch, now it supports versions above 6.3.0,
      fixed JSON parse errors
    + mdstat , now collects mismatch_cnt
    + openvpn_log

  * node.d.plugin NODE.JS modules
    + snmp was incorrectly parsing a new OID names as float.

  * charts.d.plugin BASH modules
    + nut now supports naming UPSes.

  Health monitoring:
  * Added variable $system.cpu.processors.
  * Added alarms for detecting abnormally high load average.
  * TCP SYN and TCP accept queue alarms, replacing the old softnet
    dropped alarm that was too generic and reported many false
  * system alarms are now enabled on FreeBSD.
  * netdata now reads NIC speed and sets alarms on each interface
    to detect congestion.
  * Network alarms are now relaxed to avoid false positives.
  * New bcache alarms.
  * New mdstat alarms.
  * New apcupsd alarms.
  * New mysql alarms.
  * New notification methods:
    + Microsoft Teams
    + syslog
    + Amazon SNS

  * Host tags are now sent to Graphite
  * Host variables are now sent to Prometheus

  * Each netdata slave and proxy now filter the charts that are
    streamed. This allows exposing netdata masters to third parties
    by limiting the number of charts available at the master.
  * Fixed a bug in streaming slaves that randomly prevented them
    to resume streaming after network errors.
  * Fixed a bug that on slaves that sent duplicated chart names
    under certain conditions.
  * Fixed a bug that caused slaves to consume 100% CPU (due to a
    misplaced lock) when multiple threads were adding dimensions
    on the same chart.
  * The receiving nodes of streaming (netdata masters and proxies)
    can now rate-limit the rate of inbound streaming requests
  * Re-worked time synchronization between netdata slaves and

  * Badges that report time, now show "undefined" instead of

  * Added UTC timezone to the list of available time-zones.
  * The dashboard was sending some non-HTTP compliant characters
    at the URLs that made netdata dashboards break when used under
    certain proxies.

      properly detect when btrfs is going out of space)
    - BCACHE - monitor the caching block layer that allows building hybrid
      disks using normal HDDs and SSDs
    - Ceph - monitor ceph distributed storage
    - nginx plus - monitor the nginx+ web servers
    - libreswan - monitor IPSEC tunnels
    - Traefik - monitor traefik reverse proxies
    - icecast - monitor icecast streaming servers
    - ntpd - monitor NTP servers
    - httpcheck - monitor any remote web server
    - portcheck - monitor any remote TCP port
    - spring-boot - monitor java spring boot applications
    - dnsdist - monitor dnsdist name servers
    - hugepages - monitor the allocation of Linux hugepages
  * enhanced/improved plugins:
    - statsd
      + statsd dimensions now support the options the external plugin
        dimensions support (currently the only usable option is hidden to add
        the dimension, but make it hidden on the dashboard - a hidden
        dimension can participate in various calculations, including alarms).
      + statsd now reports the CPU usage of its threads at the netdata
      + statsd metrics are logged to access.log the first time they are
      + statsd metrics now accept the special value zinit to allow them get
        initialized without altering their values (this is useful if you have
        rare metrics that you need to initialize when netdata starts).
      + statsd over TCP is now a lot faster - netdata can process up to 3.5mil
        statsd metrics / second using just one core. Added options to control
        the timeouts of TCP statsd connections.
      + fixed the title and context of statsd private charts
      + statsd private charts can now be hidden from the dashboard
    - web_log
      + Added web server response timings histogram
    - containers monitoring
      + netdata now monitors systemd-nspawn containers.
      + netdata now renames charts of kubernetes containers.
      + virsh is now called with -r to avoid prompting for password
      + cgroup-network is now a lot more strict, preventing unauthorized
        privilege escalation
      + cgroup-network now searches for container processes in sub-cgroups
        too - this improves the mapping of network interfaces to containers
      + cgroup-network now works even when there are no veth interfaces
        in the system
    - system memory
      + treat slab memory as cached
      + added a new chart for monitoring the memory available for use,
        before hitting swap
      + netdata now monitors Linux hugepages and (transparent) hugepages
    - diskspace
      + support huge amounts of mountpoints - netdata was crashing with stack
        overflow due to recursion - now it is a loop, so any number of mount
        points is supported
    - network interfaces
      + moved tcp passive and active opens to a separate chart, to allow the
        TCP issues dimensions scale better by default
      + updated the information presented on TCP charts to match the latest
        v4.15 kernel source
    - postgres
      + new charts:
        replication delta
        WAL archive
        temporary files
      + The postgres plugin now also works when postgres is in recovery mode.
    - rabbitmq
      + added Erlang run queue chart. This is useful in conjunction with the
        existing Erlang processes chart to get a better overall idea of what's
        going on in the Erlang VM.
      + added rabbitmq information on the dashboard to complement the charts.
    - apps.plugin
      netdata prior to this version was detecting the user and group of
      processes by examining the ownership of /proc/PID/stat. Unfortunately it
      seems that the owneship of files in /proc do not change when the process
      switches user. So, netdata could not detect the user and group of
      processes that started as root and then switched to another user.

      Now netdata reads /proc/PID/status:
      + process ownship information is now accurate
      + eliminated the need to read /proc/PID/statm (all the information of
        /proc/PID/statm is available in /proc/PID/status)
      + allowed netdata to read VmSwap, so a new chart has been added to
        monitor the swap memory usage per process, user and group.
      + The new plugin is 20% more expensive in terms of CPU. We tried hard
        to optimize it, but this is as good as it can get.
    - haproxy
      + hrsp_1xx, hrsp_2xx, hrsp_3xx, hrsp_4xx, hrsp_5xx, hrsp_other,
        hrsp_total for backands and frontends
      + qtime, ctime, rtime, ttime metrics for backend servers
      + backend servers In UP state
    - uptime
      + netdata now uses /proc/uptime when CLOCK_BOOTTIME does not report the
        same uptime. In containers CLOCK_BOOTTIME reports the uptime of the
        host, while /proc/uptime reports the uptime of the container, so now
        netdata correctly reports the uptime of the container.
    - ksm
      + removed to_scan dimension
      + the savings % reported by netdata was less than the actual - fixed it.
    - mdstat
      + various fixes to better monitor rebuild time and rate
    - elasticsearch
      + Added several charts for translog / indices segments statistics and
        JVM buffer pool utilization, which are often helpful when evaluating
        an elasticsearch node health
    - apcupsd
      + netdata now supports monitoring multiple APC UPSes.
    - isc-dhcpd
      + netdata now also supports monitoring IPv6 leases
    - fronius
      + added a new dimension solar_consumption
      + added alarms
    - stiebeleltron
      + added alarms
    - python.d
      + python.d.plugin can now start even if /etc/netdata/python.d.conf
        is missing
      + python.d.plugin now has an internal run counter
      + the unicode decoding of the plugin has been fixed
      + the plugin now does not validate self-signed certificates
      + the plugin can not revive obsolete charts
    - charts.d
      + charts.d.plugin BASH modules can now have custom number of retries in
        case of data collection failures
  * new alarm notifications plugins:
    - alerta
    - IRC
  * web server:
    - netdata now has a new internal web server that supports a fixed number
      of threads - we call it static web server. This web server allows
      netdata to work around memory fragmentation (since the treads are fixed,
      the underlying memory allocators reuse the same memory arenas) and cpu
      utilization (we can control the number of threads that will be used by
      netdata). This is the default now.
    - now the static threads web server reports the CPU usage of each of its
    - the HTTP response headers now include the netdata version
  * dashboard:
    - the print button now respects the URL path netdata is hosted.
    - dygraphs updated to the latest version - this fixes an issue that
      prevented netdata charts from being interactive under certain conditions
    - added dygraph theme logscale
    - fontawesome updated to version 5
    - d3 updated to the latest version (this broke c3 charts that require an
      older version)
    - added d3pie charts
    - custom dashboards can now have alarms for specific roles (all, none,
      one or more).
    - allow stacked charts to zoom vertically when dimensions are selected
    - netdata now has a global XSS protection
    - netdata now uses intersectionObserver when available - this improves the
      scrolling performance of the dashboard.
    - prevent date, time and units from wrapping at the charts legends
    - various units scaling improvements
    - added data-common-colors="NAME" chart option for custom dashboards
    - added wiki page for creating custom dashboards on Atlassian's Confluence
    - prevented a double click on the charts' toolbox to select the text of
      the buttons.
    - fixed the alignment of dashboard icons
    - added a simple js, called refresh-badges.js, to update badges on a
      custom web page
  * badges:
    - netdata badges can now be scaled
  * API:
    - added gtime parameter, for group time. This is used to request from
      netdata to return values in a different rate (i.e. gtime=60 on a X/sec
      dimension, will return X/min).
    - fixed a rounding bug in JSON generation
    - the dimensions= parameter now supports simple patterns and added option
      values match-ids and match-names to control which matches are executed
      for dimensions.
  * alarms:
    - "system.swap" alarms now send notifications with a 30 seconds delay,
      to work-around a kernel bug that incorrectly reports all swap as
      instantly used under containers
    - added alarm to predict the time a mount point will run out of inodes
    - added notifications
    - added available memory alarm
    - removed unsupported html tags from hipchat notifications.
    - pagerduty notifications have been modified to avoid incident duplication
    - alarm definitions can now use both chart IDs and chart names (prior to
      this version only chart IDs were allowed).
    - curl options (eg for disabling SSL certificates verification) for can now be defined in health_alarm_notify.conf.
    - netdata can now send notifications to IRC channels
  * backends:
    - on netdata masters, allow filtering the hosts that will be sent to
      backends with send hosts matching = * pattern.
    - improved connection error handling and added retries to allow netdata
      connect to certain backends that failed with EALREADY or EINPROGRESS.
    - json backends now receive host tags (the tags have to be formatted in a
      json friendly way)
    - re-worked the alarm that triggers when backend data are lost,
      to avoid flip-flops.
    - prometheus backends:
      + added URL option timestamps=yes|no to /api/v1/allmetrics to support
        prometheus Pushgateway
      + added netdata_info variable with the version of netdata
      + renamed netdata_host_tags to netdata_host_tags_info (the old exists
        but is deprecated and will be removed eventually)
      + when prometheus uses average metrics, netdata remembers the last
        access time the prometheus collected metrics, on a per host basis.
  * metrics streaming between netdata:
    - netdata masters and proxies now expose the version of the netdata
      collecting the metrics, not their own. So, now a netdata master shows
      on the dashboard and sends to backends the version of the netdata
      collecting the metrics
    - added stream.conf option multiple "connections = accept | deny" to allow
      or deny multiple connection for the same netdata host. The default
      remains "accept", but it is likely to be changed to no on future
  * other:
    - added global option gap when lost iterations to control the number of
      iterations that should be lost to show a gap on the charts.
    - various fixes/improvements related to netdata logs - the main change is
      that now netdata logs the thread name that logged the message, providing
      helpful insights about the thread that complained.
    - re-worked the exit procedure of netdata to allow it cleanup properly -
      sometimes netdata was deadlocked during exit, waiting forever - now
      netdata always exits promptly
    - fixed compilation on ancient gcc versions
    - netdata was always setting itself to the idle process scheduling
      priority, even when it was configured to do otherwise. Fixed it.

Sun Dec 17 22:47:20 UTC 2017 -

- Update to v1.9.0
  * new features:
    - IP address ACLs
    - auto-scaling units (KB → MB → GB → TB etc.)
    - dashboard snapshots for any timeframe/resolution
    - detection of TCP overflows and dropped connections
    - detection of redis background save failures
    - export dashboards to PDF
    - and alarm notifications
    - highlighting timeframes on all charts by holding Ctrl or Alt
    - monitoring of couchdb, powerdns, beanstalkd and dnsdist
    - monitoring of libvirt VMs
    - new alarms:
      1. too many tcp orphan sockets
      2. tcp memory that detects that the tcp stack is under memory pressure
         or close to giving memory errors
      3. too many tcp connections (for kernels that do not support dynamic
         allocation of connections)
    - timezone support
    - unit conversion (temperatures, time, etc.)
  * fixes/improvements:
    - better/faster dashboard scrolling
    - python.d.plugin rewritten
      + supports option autodetection_retry: SECONDS
      + the new URL service disables certificates checks by default,
        to allow self-signed certificates to work without configuration.
    - streaming:
      + netdata proxies with more than 100 slaves had a timing issue that
        caused them to crash randomly on slave reconnects. Parts of the code
        have been rewritten to get rid of the timing issue.
      + netdata slaves and proxies now have a protection that ensures they will
        never use 100% CPU, even if the master is misbehaving.
      + expired orphaned hosts are now removed from the my-netdata menu of the
      + streaming functions can now be monitored via access.log
      + streaming now transfers alarm variables too
    - web_log plugin
      + custom regex now supports parsing hostnames and IPs
      + now parses lines with error 408 (request timeout - these are a special
        case, since the request has not received by the web server, so the log
        line is incomplete)
      + now properly parses resp_length with value
    - disks under Linux are renamed using /dev/disk/by-label. An option has been
      added at netdata.conf to also allow renaming based on /dev/disk/by-id.
    - chrony is now disabled by default, because there have been reports that
      chronyc enters an infinite loop in CentOS and RHEL.
    - tomcat improvements to support flavors of the tomcat server
    - chart (the total system Disk I/O) is now calculated by
      aggregating the reads and writes of all physical disks. The previous chart (that is based on pgpgin and pgpgout from /proc/vmstat)
      is now named system.pgpgio. The key difference is that the new
      now sees ZFS I/O, and it also correctly and accurately sums the real disk
      bandwidth of RAID arrays.
    - chart (the total system network bandwidth) is now calculated
      by aggregating the bandwidth of all physical network interfaces and is
      common for both IPv4 and IPv6.
    - tc (QoS) charts now sort the dimensions on the legends, the same way tc
      reports them.
    - mysql (and mariadb) got new charts for galera replication
    - postgres versions <= 10 the WAL directory was named pg_xlog' and from 10
      upwards has been renamed to pg_wal
    - freeipmi.plugin got a command line option (can be given in netdata.conf)
      to ignore certain sensor IDs that are faulty.
    - minor openvpn_log, smartd, smartd_log, varnish, mdstat, dns_query_time,
      isc_dhcpd, freeradius and node.d.plugin fixes/improvements
    - netdata now supports multiple plugin directories. The setting is the same
      in netdata.conf, plugins directory = "DIRECTORY1" "DIRECTORY2" ...,
      up to 20 directories.
    - netdata now supports alarms variables. Each plugin can now define host
      global and chart local variables with static values that can be used in
      alarms' expressions.
    - dashboard:
      + hover selection of charts is now faster on all browsers
      + the dashboard is now fixed when a modal is open, preventing scrolling
      + the dashboard now uses fontawesome 5.0.1 for icons
      + chart names can now be searched with browser control-F
      + netdata now detects libvirt VM network interfaces and moves them to the
        VM section of the dashboard
      + now shows the context, resolution and plugin/module of each chart in
      + should now put a lot less CPU pressure on the browser when the page
        does not have focus
    - statsd:
      + metrics can now be added to statsd synthetic charts using patterns
      + dimensions added to statsd synthetic charts can automatically be renamed
        using a dictionary
      + timers and histograms now report zeros when nothing is collected
    - badges:
      + fixed a bug in netdata badges that was incorrectly matching zero values
        with the null color condition
      + added API option display_absolute to allow badges use the signed value
        for color evaluation, but present the absolute value
    - alarms/notifications:
      + warning emails sent by netdata are now a little bit more orange
        (they were a bit greenish)
      + fixed a bug in email notifications that was triggering a corrupted MIME
        match by anti-spam solutions
      + pushbullet notifications now track the devices, so that per-device
        filtering at pushbullet is possible. Also improved the formatting a bit.
      + correct priority of warnings for pushover notifications
      + alarms can now use variables like this:
        ${variable with spaces or +, -, *, / in it}
    - other:
      + access.log has been refactored to support monitoring all netdata
      + inodes monitoring is now by default disabled for mount points based on
        filesystems that do not have a maximum inode threshold (such as cephfs)
      + rabbitmq has been added to apps_groups.conf so that apps.plugin now
        monitors (cpu, memory, disk I/O, sockets, etc) rabbitmq instances
      + several email and log management apps have been added to email and logs
        targets of apps_groups.conf
      + ceph target added to apps_groups.conf to allow netdata to monitor Ceph
      + refactored several internal data collection plugins to eliminate a few
        hundreds of index lookups per second
      + netdata.conf settings that are loaded from disk, but were the same with
        the default ones, were generated commented when the server was asked to
        return its config. Now all loaded settings are generated uncommented.
      + netdata simple patterns can now extract the the wildcarded part of the
        string they match (used in statsd synthetic charts)
      + netdata simple patterns can allow escaping spaces by prefixing them
        with a backslash
