Control panel not show any graphs of droplets created by kubernetes "Add node pool" UI. Shows ""DigitalOcean has a new metrics" What to do?

Hi all!,

My control panel doesn’t show any graphs of droplets created by kubernetes “add node pool” button, it shows the warning “DigitalOcean has a new metrics…” instead… What I have to do?

Complete message: "DigitalOcean has a new metrics agent that makes it easier for users to contribute custom metrics and provides an additional load average plot. On July 8, 2019 metrics provided by the legacy metrics agent will no longer be available. For more information on the new metrics agent and how to upgrade, please see our guidance document .

Get upgrade instructions

Notice The legacy metrics agent has been deprecated as of 8 July, 2019. To continue viewing metrics, please upgrade the agent to the latest version."

Many thanks!

I think I have the same problem.

  • Using floating IP which I set really early in the installation process
  • Followed instructions to upgrade to latest version several times to no avail
