Question

Is there an API to connect to the new monitoring that Digital Ocean is providing?

I love the new monitoring and alerts that are a part of the digital ocean droplets. But I want to make these number a part of our application monitoring dashboard. I would also want to connect this to hubot. Is there an API for these monitoring stats??

Hello,

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:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/reference/api/api-reference/#tag/Monitoring

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-agent as per the instructions here:

Hope that this helps. Best, Bobby

    It’s a shame DO hasn’t implemented yet such a basic cloud functionality. I’m considering switching providers, because of this missing feature.
