Hey @RiversideRocks,

I believe that the monitoring data is not available via the DigitalOcean API as of the time being.

What I could suggest in the time being is to use a monitoring system like Nagios or Zabbix for example. You can find some tutorials on how to setup that here:

Regarding the API, the best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
