2. Install Netdata

Install Netdata with the official installation script:

  • Make sure you run bash for your shell
$ bash
  • Install Netdata directly from GitHub source
$ bash <(curl -Ss

If no errors occur during installation, the Netdata daemon will start.

3. Modify Firewall Rules

$ sudo systemctl start netdata.service
$ sudo systemctl enable netdata.service

To further configure Netdata, edit the configuration file:
