I’m using D.O. API v2 to retrieve data/stats of my droplets and what I want to know is how to get stats (using APIv2) about how much CPU is being used and how much Disk has been used by my droplets?

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-agentas per the instructions here:
Hope that this helps. Best, Bobby
Would be nice to be able to retrieve CPU load and Disk I/O via API. I think that for simple droplets this could obviate the installation of an additional monitoring tools, especially if you are using the API for all other stuff.
All of the current APIv2 endpoints are listed here and currently we do not have any API access for monitoring tools. You may be able to set something like this up with a tool like Nagios, or another monitoring tool though.
