I would like to get advanced metrics from my Kubernetes worker node.
When I view the worker nodes in the Droplets screen, I get the usual instruction to shell into the Droplet and install the DO Agent, but I cannot shell into the worker.
Step 3 of the Kubernetes Quick Start guide says to choose a data center and an SSH key, but I do not have an SSH key option when I create a cluster so I appear to be unable to shell in to my worker node and install the DO Agent.
Is it possible to install the DO Agent on worker nodes?

I’m use my own wrapper for it
wrapper itself is simple:
Kubernetes monitoring is in progress, and should be out by next month. This will provide worker performance metrics in the DigitalOcean dashboard, as well as a handful of optional deployment-related kube-state-metrics. The do-agent will be installed by default.
