Question

Does DigitalOcean keeps logs of connections of my droplets?

Hello!

Kind of testing a few apps, I was wondering if DigitalOcean keeps logs of outgoing connections that Ive seen in some other VPS’s, Either built into the system or something DigitalOcean has themselves. If not, any applications you can recommend me do that I can install?

Using Ubuntu 14.04

We provide a Droplets with base distributions like Ubuntu so we do not do connection tracking for your actual droplet.

However, most applications that you install will keep their logs in /var/log and will include connection attempts.

For ssh connections you should be able to find that in:

/var/log/auth.log
