How to fetch network usage metrics via DigitalOcean's API ?

The problem I’m trying to solve is the following: I need to fetch GB per hour usage data for these 3 categories:

  • Load Balancer
  • Network Traffic
  • CDN usage

I only found the “Droplet Bandwidth” but nothing more for any of the above. Is it possible to do so with the current API ?

I’m trying to replicate the graphs that cloud.digitalocean provides when clicking on “network” - basically I want all that data from an API, without having to access the dashboard itself.

Is this possible ?

Hey @iferreira,

I believe that as of the time being this is not possible.

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!
