Hi there,

This is quite interesting, when was the Droplet created? Also is the metrics agent installed on your Droplet?

What I could suggest is:

  • Make sure that the metrics agent is installed
  • Try using the script from this answer here as a test to see if you have the latest metrics as well:

Let me know how it goes!
