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??


I would like to see this as an endpoint also.

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:

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.

No it has not changed.

any update on this?

Has this changed?


At the moment, no. Stats and alert configuration is limited to the DigitalOcean control panel. That may change in the future, though right now the API doesn’t provide support or endpoints for access.
