What is netdata and how it looks?

Here is also live demo:

Downloading netdata

Login to SSH and write there these commands (you can also copy&paste them)

Running netdata

After each shutdown/crash/restart whatever happened you will need to manually startup netdata and you will do it with this command


Now you should see it running on

Running netdata automatically after reboot of router place a new file (eg. 'netdata') under /etc/cron.d/ with the following content and netdata is started on every boot.

@reboot root /usr/sbin/netdata

If you don't want netdata anymore then you need to write (or copy&paste) this command and it will take care of it.
