Monitor & troubleshoot for free with zero configuration

Installing the Netdata Agent

The Netdata Agent runs permanently on all your physical/virtual servers, containers, cloud deployments, and edge/IoT devices. It runs on Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, and more), container/microservice platforms (Kubernetes clusters, Docker), and many other operating systems (FreeBSD, macOS), with no sudo required.

⚠️ Many distributions ship with third-party packages of Netdata, which we cannot maintain or keep up-to-date.

The recommended way to install the Netdata Agent on a Linux system is our one-line kickstart script below. This script automatically installs dependencies and builds Netdata from its source code.


bash <(curl -Ss


Copy the script, paste it into your node’s terminal, and hit Enter.

Open your favorite browser and navigate to http://localhost:19999 or http://REMOTE-HOST:19999 to open the dashboard.

How can Netdata be free?

The Netdata Agent is free, open source software licensed under GPL v3.0. No registration is required; just install and go. It is ideal for single-node monitoring.

Netdata Cloud is free, closed source, software-as-a-service that brings together metadata from all of your endpoints running the Netdata Agent, giving you a complete view of the health and performance of your infrastructure.

Because you retain all of your data, Netdata Cloud is extremely lightweight and performant, with very low incremental cost and infinite scalability.

In the future, we will offer a paid plan with advanced functionality for enterprise users.

Netdata is a venture-funded company.

Is my data secure?

Privacy is very important to us. We firmly believe that your data belongs to you. This is why we don’t store any metric data in Netdata Cloud.

All the data presented in Netdata Cloud is streamed directly from the Netdata Agent to the Netdata Cloud dashboard. It passes through our systems, but is not stored.

We do however store limited metadata to be able to offer the stunning visualizations and advanced functionality of Netdata Cloud.

  • The email address you used to sign up
  • For each node claimed to your Spaces in Netdata Cloud:
    • Hostname (as it appears in Netdata Cloud)
    • Information shown in /api/v1/info
    • The chart metadata shown in /api/v1/charts
    • Alarm configurations shown in /api/v1/alarms?all
    • Active alarms shown in /api/v1/alarms

This data is only be available to Netdata and never to a third party.

Is there an on-premises version available?

Not yet! Send us an email at [email protected] if you’re interested. We’d love to learn more about your requirements and use case.

Do I have to use Netdata Cloud?
No. You can configure your Netdata Agent to disable Cloud functionality either at installation or at runtime.
