How to show all graphs on one screen 24/7 without logging in every time

Hello !

Is there a way to show all graphs (droplets) on a big TV screen 24/7 in the office without logging in every day to DigitalOcean. Is there a simple solution to monitor our servers and databases on a big screen?

I have seen different discussions and clips in YouTube on building custom api, but none of them is perfect for us. We need fast and reliable solution to see exact same graphs (droplets) like on the DigitalOcean page (better if without GET requests with difficult numbers and logic).

For example, dividing big TV screen to 4 pieces and outputting graphs like that is not the best solution either because we would still have to log in every day and we can monitor only 4-6 graphs like that.

We have a Raspberry PI and we plan to connect it to TV and monitor our servers and databases through TV, so everyone in the office can see, how good or bad the situation is.

Thank you very much !

Hey @DriftingCyanBoat,

I believe that the Droplet monitoring graphs are only accessible via the DigitalOcean Control Panel as you mentioned. So you would need to occasionally log in to your DigitalOcean account in order to show the graphs. But this sounds like it’d be super useful!

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.

Alternatively, you could use an external monitoring solution like Nagios for example as described in this tutorial here:

Hope that helps!

Nagios is a popular open-source monitoring system. It keeps an inventory of your servers and monitors them so you know your critical services are up and running. Using a monitoring system like Nagios is an essential tool for any production.
