DigitalOcean Metrics Not Installing

October 25, 2019 144 views

I have run the commands outlined on the “upgrading from legacy metrics agent” including do-agent purge,

I then run the following command, as outlined on the instructions.

curl -sSL | sudo bash

The terminal then displays the following.

[Cleaning up old sources…OK

Verifying compatability with script…OK

Following this, nothing happens.
Previously, a “we’re loading new droplet metrics check back later” message was displayed, however for many hours, my droplet continues to show the usual upgrading to new metrics notice.

Is there a problem with DigitalOcean because it’s not showing any errors in the terminal.

The output that you’ve shared makes me believe that the installation was successful.

I would recommend checking the status of the do-agent service and make sure that it is running:

systemctl status do-agent
