Single Graph to monitor multiple Droplets

Without using Grafana, or the API is there any way to easily just create a dashboard to show cpus/etc graphs of multiple droplets on a single page?


Perhaps I should’ve written “As they would’ve otherwise been valid answers”. My point was that without knowing why you do not want to use those two options, it would’ve been easy to give suggestions that you don’t like. If someone was asking me “Can anyone suggest a distribution that isn’t Debian or Ubuntu?” because they didn’t like apt, it would be pointless to suggest Linux Mint to them. So yes, now your explanation is good enough and people might be able to help you much better if they’re aware of easier solutions. I wish you good luck.

@pono - You might be interested in participating in a forum where you can request DO to extend functionality to the DO dashboard, or any other suggestions to improve DO. BTW, @gp+digitalocean added a comment and not an answer, as I am also.

Because setting those up requires a bit of work and all the data we want to see is currently sitting on Each Droplet.

Seems like it’s super easy to just have the Digital Ocean Console improve to allow doing this.

I’ve setup grafana/carbons/statsd and managed all that before and it isn’t trivial. Actually quite the opposite.

Is that explanation good enough?

Also, I respectfully disagree a “valid” answer to question A is to use “solution B”.

I didn’t ask to setup Grafana, I asked if the Digital Ocean software could support a basic collated dashboard view of their existing graphs on one page.

The answer to that isn’t use grafana. That’s like saying the answer to “i’m using javascript and would like immutable data” is “use erlang”…when the answer is “use immutable.js”.

You might want to explain why you don’t want to use Grafana or the API, as they would’ve been valid answers.

Hey Pono,

There is not going to be a way to do this built in - our control panel just isn’t built to do it. I understand you do not want to setup additional services to handle this, but that would probably be your best option in this case.

Can I suggest you post your idea on our user feedback forums - There, all of our users can see it and vote on it if they also want to see it added to our platform.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.
