How do I enable the Nvidia monitoring in Netdata

Tried to add the nvidia_smi conf file to /etc/netdata/python.d but can’t seem to get the Nvidia monitoring to show up.

Anyone know how to get it to work?

Got it working finally. For anyone running into the same issue:

Edit the file /usr/lib/netdata/conf.d/python.d.conf and add:
nvidia-smi: yes

For some reason a lot of directories were read only, including /usr so I had to run:
zfs set readonly=off boot-pool/ROOT/24.04.0/usr

Ran debugging to see if it worked (plugin located in /usr/lib/netdata/plugins.d):
./python.d.plugin nvidia_smi debug

And that worked so just had to restart the Netdata service and it started showing up.

I had to use

nvidia_smi: yes

in /usr/lib/netdata/conf.d/python.d.conf for it to work.

Did you test if it survives a reboot?

Yes it did
