Hello, I have a Droplet 48 GB Memory / 50 GB Disk / SFO2 running for my production site, I configured alerts with default values for CPU, Memory, Disk and also Bandwidth Speed (above 70.00 Mbps for 5 minutes). I received a few alerts saying that, for example “Network Transmit Bytes for droplet xxxx is currently at 441.67 Mbps, above setting of 70.00 Mbps… etc”. I was wondering: what does this metric really mean and should I be worried about those “peaks”? and, why I’m receiving and email alert when according to the Monitoring Tab, no alerts have been triggered and according to the graphs, the peaks are way below the 70.00 Mbps mark?
Name Last Alert
CPU is running high . Never CPU is above 70% for 10 min
Bandwidth — Outbound is running high Never Bandwidth — Outbound is above 70Mbps for 5 min
Bandwidth — Inbound is running high Bandwidth — Inbound is above 71Mbps for 5 min Never
Disk — Read is running high Never Disk — Read is above 75MB/s for 5 min
Memory Utilization is running high . Never Memory Utilization is above 70% for 5 min
I hope this makes sense! :)
