An update that fixes four vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

This update for netdata fixes the following issues:

Update to 1.31.0 (go.d.plugin 0.29.0)

The v1.31.0 release of Netdata comes with re-packaged and redesigned
elements of the dashboard to help you focus on your metrics, even more
Linux kernel insights via eBPF, on-node machine learning to help you find
anomalies, and much more. This release contains 10 new collectors, 54
improvements (7 in the dashboard), 31 documentation updates, and 29 bug
fixes. At a glance We re-packaged and redesigned portions of the dashboard
to improve the overall experience. Part of this effort is better handling
of dashboard code during installation???anyone using third-party packages
(such as the Netdata Homebrew formula) will start seeing new features and
the new designs starting today. The timeframe picker has moved to the top
panel, and just to its right are two counters with live CRITICAL and
WARNING alarm statuses for your node. Click on either of these two open
the alarms modal. We've also pushed a number of powerful new collectors,
including directory cache monitoring via eBPF. By monitoring directory
cache, developers and SREs alike can find opportunities to optimize memory
usage and reduce disk-intensive operations. Our new Z-scores and
changefinder collectors use machine learning to let you know, at a glance,
when key metrics start to behave
oddly. We'd love to get feedback on these sophisticated, subjective new
brand of collectors!
