Composite charts are here!
In Netdata Cloud, your nodes are organized into War Rooms. One of the two available views for a War Room is the Overview, which uses composite charts to display real-time, aggregated metrics from all the nodes (or a filtered selection) in a given War Room.
With Overview’s composite charts, you can see your infrastructure from a single pane of glass, discover trends or anomalies, then drill down with filtering or single-node dashboards to see more. In the screenshot below, each chart visualizes average or sum metrics values from across 5 distributed nodes.
That’s right, simply add all the nodes you want in the same war-room click on the view dropdown of the War-Room Utility Bar and select
You don’t need to set up anything. We do all the heavy lifting for you.
Only nodes with v1.25.0-127 or later of the Netdata Agent can contribute to composite charts. If your node(s) use an earlier, incompatible version of the Netdata Agent, you will see them marked as needs upgrade in the tooltip that appears when hovering over X Issues.

See our update docs for the preferred update method based on how you installed the Agent.
Composite charts, at the moment, group all the nodes in the same War Room by chart. Each chart is a chart of the aggregated metrics from all the nodes.
These charts have 4 distinct modes, namely
AVG which perform the relevant aggregate function to the metrics of a particular chart, from all nodes.
This way, you can choose
MAX of CPU consumption and see that from the tens of nodes that you may have in the war-room, the node with the highest CPU consumption has it’s CPU consumption under normal boundaries, thus the rest of the nodes are normal too.
You can read more about the
overview mode in our documentation.
We have also added the option of using filters, thus the user can easily view the nodes that share some characteristic, such as a particular

Time & Date picker
We add a brand new date picker in Netdata Cloud. You can now either choose one of our pre-defined selections (e.g last 12hrs) or you can define a custom date.

We need you!
This feature is brand-new and it’s only the first step towards a robust solution for overview visualization of your infrastructure. Soon, you will be able to do a lot more, like grouping metrics by node instead of by chart. But, we can’t do it alone, we need your feedback.
