Does digitalocean monitoring require any ports to be open?

I am looking at looking down my ufw firewall, and was wondering how the new monitoring gets its information? Does it require any ports to be able to poll the statistics of the vps?

Hi @ed11s8c

No, the do-agent only pushes data. Port 80 is used for metadata and port 443 is used to send the data to the statistical collector.
As long as you don’t block those two outgoing ports, then it’s not an issue.

It will not conflict with a web server running on your droplet, since that is incoming ports.
