    I’ve installed netdata but how do you actually install the plugin from the kickstart method? Do you just get the files from github and put them in the right path and then customize the config file?

    Hi Ravi,

    Thanks for a very informative article!

    I just wanted to add that an easy way to monitor your MySQL and MariaDB instances is to use an agentless tool. In my work as an IT developer I have a few databases that require monitoring. I have been using Navicat Monitor for MySQL/ MariaDB for about a year now and have been quite impressed by it.

    I would highly recommend going the agentless route because it allows you to monitor your DB instances from anywhere without having to install any software on the server. That leaves all of its processing cycles free to manage database transactions.

    Another plus for me is that you can get an overview of all of your instances on one screen. From there, you can drill down to get more details about a particular instance.

    I’ve recently been working with Amazon RDS and Google Cloud and have found Navicat to be superior to the native tools that come with the Cloud services.

    Basically, if a device can connect to the Internet, you can monitor your MySQL/ MariaDB databases using Navicat.

    Thanks again for a very in-depth article!

    Best regards,

    Rob Gravelle
