Alerts on High Usage

Yesterday, my site was very slow and not so responsive - each page was taking 30 seconds to load. The server wasn’t down but on looking at the dashboard, we saw that there was high usage in the networking and IO graphs. I was wondering, if there is any option in DigitalOcean to alert us when there is a spike in network / CPU / IO usage ? I couldn’t find that in the dashboard.
