Hello, is there a way to get droplet metric data via the API? I’ve looked at the API docs page and have not seen such a thing.

Just a quick update here. DigitalOcean now has a Monitoring API endpoint that you could use. For more information you can take a look at the official API documentation here:
Also, keep in mind that you need to have the DigitalOcean Metrics Agent installed on your Droplet in order to get some data back.
You can install the
do-agentas per the instructions here:
Hope that this helps. Best, Bobby
Hey @RiversideRocks ,
You should be able to get json output specifically for metrics from our API. Here is the API documentation link: https://docs.digitalocean.com/reference/api/api-reference/#operation/get_droplet_cpu_metrics.
Example. If you wish to get the cpu metrics for a Droplet, this would be syntax you would want to use:
You need to replace the variables $dropletid $starttimeinepoch & $endtimeinepoch
Sample output would look like this:
I hope this helps!
