Is Netdata an alternative to Nagios or Cacti with a central web interface and clients connecting the various systems/vms/containers?
Or is Netdata more like Webmin?

Hello Lofti Waderni,
CAn Netdata monitor remote host, or must it be installed locally.
Hi Oyedotun Sodiq,
Unfortunately, Netdata is not designed to monitor multiple remote Linux machines, but i think that you can custom the dashboard to display multiple graphs from different servers.
