Rapid Setup, Full Automation, Easy to Use

Benefit from customizable alerts, dynamic thresholds, SLI/SLO/SLA monitoring, and seamless integration with external tools, ensuring optimal performance and reliability for your infrastructure and applications.

Monitoring modern infrastructure can be a challenging, time-consuming, and cost-inefficient task as systems and services become increasingly complex and demanding.

Netdata’s main goal is to help users get the most out of the monitoring system, immediately after installing it. This is achieved via a careful design and advanced automations that take care of most details, on behalf of our users. The net result is a monitoring solution that is easy for newcomers, yet powerful for experts. A monitoring system that can even be installed mid-crisis, to help diagnose and improve the stability and performance of running production systems.


The following features work out-of-the-box, without any user configuration or intervention:

  1. Auto-discovery of metric data sources

    Netdata automatically detects and monitors various data sources, services, and infrastructure components as soon as it’s installed. This includes auto-scaling environments, where new services or components can be identified and integrated without manual intervention.

  2. Fully automated dashboards for all metrics

    Netdata provides automated dashboards for all collected metrics, allowing users to visualize and analyze data without the need for deep understanding of the underlying dataset. The dashboards also offer fully automated query generation, enabling users to slice, dice, and pivot the data without manually composing queries.

  3. Preconfigured alerts

    Netdata comes with preconfigured alerts that are automatically attached to all instances of monitored components or applications. These alert templates ensure that users receive timely notifications when issues arise, without the need for manual configuration.

  4. Unsupervised AI-powered anomaly detection for every metric

    Netdata offers zero-configuration ML training and real-time anomaly detection for every metric and sample collected. This feature enables users to leverage machine learning insights without any setup or additional expertise.

  5. Zero-maintenance operations

    Netdata is designed to be low-maintenance, automatically scaling and tuning itself based on workload and performance requirements. This ensures that the monitoring system remains optimized and efficient without any user intervention.

Advanced Automation

The following features require initial configuration to be enabled, but then they work without any user intervention:

  1. IaC

    Netdata deployment can be integrated and automated using CI/CD principles, with tools like Terraform, Ansible, etc. This way, the monitoring system automatically scales together with the infrastructure and at the same time every infrastructure component is automatically monitored.

  2. Templates for automated deployment of alerts

    Netdata supports alert templates, which allow users to set up rules for every component or application monitored, automatically applying them to all instances of the components and applications discovered. Additionally, users can configure dynamic thresholds based on various parameters, such as rolling windows and statistical functions like the coefficient of variation, preventing the need to hard code specific thresholds for triggering the alerts.

    Netdata alerts also offer the ability to set dynamic thresholds based on the state of alerts to prevent flip-flopping.

  3. Integration with external tools and services for enhanced automation

    Netdata can be configured to connect with various third-party tools and services, such as notification systems, incident management platforms, and other applications. This enables seamless workflows and enhanced functionality without manual intervention after the initial setup. When integrated with incident management tools or platforms, Netdata can automatically create and manage incident tickets based on predefined rules and triggers, including escalation and assignment to the appropriate team members for efficient issue resolution.

  4. Self-healing via automated incident response

    Users can configure Netdata to execute external scripts in response to specific alerts. These scripts can perform self-healing actions, such as restarting services or reallocating resources, to automatically resolve issues and maintain system stability without continuous manual intervention.

Netdata’s comprehensive set of automation features delivers a powerful, user-friendly monitoring solution that simplifies the management of your infrastructure and applications. With out-of-the-box automation capabilities and configuration-based automation, Netdata enables users to focus on their core business operations while enjoying the peace of mind that comes from a reliable and adaptive monitoring system.

By leveraging Netdata’s advanced features like customizable alerts, dynamic thresholds, SLIs, SLOs, and SLA monitoring, organizations can effectively optimize performance, reduce downtime, and maintain compliance with industry standards.
