Download raw monitoring data

Posted May 15, 2020 555 views


for a performance and resource evaluation we need to access/download the raw monitoring data displayed in the graphs section of droplets and insights section of Kubernetes nodes.

Are those available for download somewhere in the Digitalocean web UI or the nodes themselves? In case of the latter, what is the location on the node’s file system?

Unfortunately it isn’t possible to download that data. In the Kubernetes setup you don’t have SSH access to the nodes and the control panel data can’t be downloaded. As a work around you could setup your own monitoring that you could access through the cluster.
