No memory graph

In one of my droplets, I have no memory graph. Only Bandwidth, CPU, and Disk/Io.

I tried to follow this guide, but it did not change anything: https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/monitoring/how-to/install-agent/

do-agent seems to be running. when I do ps aux | grep do-agent, this is the output:

root        6533  0.0  0.0   8160   732 pts/0    S+   22:52   0:00 grep --color=auto do-agent

How can I get the memory graph to show up?

Hi @geochanto,

Let’s start with the grep command, if you look a bit closely, you’ll notice the ps aux command only shows your grep and not the do-agent.

All in all, the agent is not running. I would assume you’ve missed something from the tutorial. Can you please try again to follow all the steps and let me know how it goes?

  • You’re right, I had missed a step. Works great now :)

    • Hi @geochanto,

      I’m glad to hear you managed to make it work!

      Would it be possible to share which step you missed, maybe it’s something that can be improved for future use to be more noticeable?

      • It was more of a mechanichal mistake. I typed both of these commands, copy-pasting from you documentation:

        sudo apt-get update
        sudo apt-get install do-agent
        

        Usually in these cases second one gets executed immediately after first one is done. But here I had to hit “enter” again and I had missed that :)

        • Hi @geochanto,

          Ah, fair enough. I can’t lie, it has happened to me too in previous cases :D.

          Anyway, thank you for sharing this!
