title:Quick Salt State to Deploy Netdata

As a follow-up to my recent explorations with using Tailscale Serve to make netdata monitoring readily available on my tailnet, I wanted a quick way to reproduce that configuration across my handful of systems. These systems already have Tailscale installed and configured, and they're all managed with Salt.

So here's a hasty Salt state that I used to make it happen.

It simply installs netdata using the handy-dandy kickstart script, and then configures Tailscale to Serve the netdata instance (with a trusted cert!) inside my tailnet over https://[hostname].[tailnet-name].ts.net:8443/netdata.

14 cmd.run:
15 - name: curl -Ss https://get.netdata.cloud/kickstart.sh | sh -s -- --dont-wait
16 - require:
17 - pkg: curl
18 # don't run this block if netdata is already running
19 - unless: pgrep netdata
20 
21tailscale-serve:
22 cmd.run:
23 - name: tailscale serve --bg --https 8443 --set-path /netdata 19999
24 - require:
25 - pkg: tailscale
26 - cmd: netdata-kickstart
27 # don't run this if netdata is already tailscale-served
28 - unless: tailscale serve status | grep -q '/netdata proxy http://127.0.0.1:19999'

It's not super elegant... but it got the job done, and that's all I needed it to do.
