Release highlights

Kubernetes Monitoring: New charts for CPU throttling

Have you seen your applications get stuck or fail to respond to health checks? It might be the CPU quota limit!

Kubernetes relies on the kernel control group (cgroup) mechanisms to manage CPU constraints. The CPU quota is allocated based on a period of time, not on available CPU power. When an application has used its allotted quota for a given period, it gets throttled until the next period.

So if you don’t set your CPU limits correctly, your applications will be throttled while your CPU may be idle. And CPU throttling is really hard to identify since Kubernetes only exposes usage metrics.

In this release, we make troubleshooting Kubernetes even easier by adding two new charts for CPU throttling:

  • CPU throttled Runnable Periods: The percentage of runnable periods when tasks in a cgroup have been throttled.
  • CPU throttled Time Duration: The total time duration for which tasks in a cgroup have been throttled.

Machine learning (ML) powered anomaly detection

The performance of the machine learning threads have been significantly optimized in this release. We were able to reduce peak CPU usage considerably by sampling input data randomly and excluding constant metrics from training. That way, we've optimized performance while maintaining high levels of accuracy. If you're streaming data between nodes: We've optimized CPU usage on parent nodes with multiple child nodes by altering the training thread's max sleep time.

Streaming compression is now in Alpha

We introduced streaming compression in Netdata Agent v1.33.0 as a tech preview. The feature has matured a lot since then so we are moving forward to alpha stage. From now on, streaming compression will be enabled by default, allowing you to leverage faster streaming between parent and child nodes at a lower bandwidth.

SNMP collector now runs on Go

Go is known for its reliability and blazing speed - precisely what you need when monitoring networks. We've rewritten our SNMP collector from Node.js to Go. Apart from improved configuration options, the new collector eliminates the need for Node.js, slimming down our dependency tree.

Note: The node.js-based SNMP collector will be deprecated in the next release, see the deprecation notice.

Improved installation experience

We have been improving our kickstart script to give you a smooth installation experience. We've added some handy features like:

  • Dry run mode: Show what would be done without actually modifying the system, including reporting a number of common installation issues before they arise.
  • Overhauled auto-update management: Including support for auto-updates with our native packages and much easier control of whether auto updates are enabled or not.
  • Improved reinstallation support: With the new --reinstall-clean option, you can now have the kickstart script cleanly uninstall an existing installation before installing Netdata again.
