Hi, Is there a way to monitor bandwidth usage of a droplet as I couldn't find an API method for that

Once they implement bandwidth limits, there should be a monitor in place. Use the package vnstat until then.
This isn't currently implemented, but DO is working on it, see

If you wanted to monitor bandwidth usage you'd have to use a package like "vnstat" or "munin".

I need help:

I’m development a app with PHP and I need implement any way to get Resources every X time.

I read de API v2 on Digital Ocean and don’t see any that help me.

For example, I need know How many RAM memory, CPU, Bandwidth is using by the Droplet?

Right now I can create, restart, poweroff, … but can’t not get any result on real time monitoring.

// create and return the created Droplet entity
$created = $droplet->create(‘dropet-name’, 'clc1’, '1024mb’, 45656735);

// delete the droplet
Don’t want/can install nothing on the server, I want any solution that I can access to API and get this result, please.

Any suggestion?
