netdata Graphite Dashboard
Metrics provided by netdata, written into Graphite and displayed via Grafana!
- netdata v1.8.0
- It should display the most panels for a default installation of linux.
- It's tested on Debian Stretch x64, OSMC (on Raspberry PI2) & armbian (on OrangePi+2E).
- This dashboard uses templating heavily but as a limitation of grafana it is not possible to hide panels with no data.
- Special handling of data provided by the use of docker at the collected hosts.
Metric Field description
datasource= your graphite datasource for this dashboard.
rootdir= also known as prefix, used to summarize metrics of a collector.
server= Server Name without
.. Please see Rewrites Section.
You can see them at the top of the dashboard.
interface= Network interfaces
tc= Quality of Service
disk= Disk IOPs
disk_space= Disk Space
cgroupplugin= Output of cgroup plugin
pythonplugin= Output of python plugin

Note: Please keep in mind that hostnames usually contain
.. You may want to consider symlinking in the storage directory instead or do rewriting of metrics, as this dashboard uses only the 2nd field for the hostname.
eth sub interfaces (like
cgroupplugin needs rewrites as well. A sample configuration for
carbon-c-relay is provided above.
# Rewrite Host rewrite ^netdata\.([a-z0-9]+)\.example\.com\. into netdata.\1_example_com. ; # Rewrite network subinterfaces rewrite ^netdata\.([a-z0-9\_]+)\.net\.(eth[0-9]+)\.([0-9]+)\. into netdata.\1.net.\2_\3. ; # Fix recursion of cgroup plugin rewrite ^netdata\.([a-z0-9\_]+)\.(cgroup\_[a-z0-9\_]+)\.(cgroup\_[a-z0-9\_]+\.)+ into netdata.\1.\2. ;
Note: As netdata is designed for live views you may want to configure an aligned storage schema that matches netdata's own interval called
update every (see this link) as well.
Storage Schema example config
storage-schemas.conf for the default value of netdata's
update every (1s):
[netdata] pattern = ^netdata\. retentions = 1s:3h
- Optional but recommended: deploy provided rewriting
- Optional but recommended: Master-Slave Setup
- Configure netdata to write to Graphite
- Import Dashboard and select the appropriate values at the top variable list for: datasource, rootdir, server.
- Adopt the dashboard's refresh interval to fit your needs.
