In this guide, we will show you how to install Netdata Agent on AlmaLinux 9
Netdata is an open source tool designed to collect real-time metrics, such as CPU usage, disk activity, bandwidth usage, website visits, etc., and then display them in live, easy-to-interpret charts.
The tool is designed to visualize activity in the greatest possible detail, allowing the user to obtain an overview of what is happening and what has just happened in their system or application.
The Netdata Agent is an enormously powerful, Open-Sourced, Single Node health monitoring and performance troubleshooting tool. It gives you the ability to automatically identify processes, collect and store metrics locally and even more – visualize all metrics without any configuration (of course you can tweak it later on if you need).
