Question

Digital Ocean Monitoring API always returns empty result

So I am trying to add droplet monitoring to my app and want to use CPU monitoring data from digital ocean API.

I’m getting this response for every single droplet. I’ve also tried putting same timestamps DO puts in internal monitoring requests for my droplets, still no success.

{"status":"success","data":{"resultType":"matrix","result":[]}}

Could anyone help with this?

Hello,

I’ve just tested this and it looks like that in order for you to be able to use the monitoring API, you need to have the DigitalOcean monitoring agent installed on your server as per the instructions here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/monitoring/how-to/install-agent/

Once installed the result array should populate with data.
Hope that this helps!
Best,
Bobby
