Real-time performance monitoring, in the greatest possible detail
netdata dashboards cannot be captured, since we are lazy loading and hiding all but the visible charts.
To capture the whole page with all the charts rendered, a new browser window will pop-up that will render all the charts at once. The new browser window will maintain the current pan and zoom settings of the charts. So, align the charts before proceeding.
This process will put some CPU and memory pressure on your browser.
For the netdata server, we will sequencially download all the charts, to avoid congesting network and server resources.
Please, do not print netdata dashboards on paper!
netdata can export and import dashboard snapshots. Any netdata can import the snapshot of any other netdata. The snapshots are not uploaded to a server. They are handled entirely by your web browser, on your computer.
The generated snapshot will include all charts of this dashboard, for the visible timeframe, so align, pan and zoom the charts as needed. The scroll position of the dashboard will also be saved. The snapshot will be downloaded as a file, to your computer, that can be imported back into any netdata dashboard (no need to import it back on this server).
Snapshot files include all the information of the dashboard, including the URL of the origin server, its netdata unique ID, etc.
So, if you share the snapshot file with third parties, they will be able to access the origin server, if this server is exposed on the internet.
Snapshots are handled entirely by the web browser. The netdata servers are not aware of them.
SHIFTkey, press the left mouse button on the contents of a chart and move the mouse to select an area, to zoom in. The other charts will follow too. Zooming is performed in two phases:
ALTkey, press the left mouse button on the contents of a chart and move the mouse to select an area. The selected are will be highlighted on all charts.
SHIFTkey and the mouse pointer is over the contents of a chart, scroll the mouse wheel to zoom in or out. This kind of zooming is aligned to center below the mouse pointer. The other charts will follow too.
