Question

System info added to the api?

  • Posted June 26, 2013

Hey,

I am in need of some accurate cpu, mem and other stats about the server. before I start developing my own solution I was wondering if the planned ‘server monitoring tools’ will be added to the api. if so, that would save me a lot of time + provide the most accurate stats!

Thanks in advance, Sam

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

Droplet stats aren’t currently available but I believe it’ll be included in the API once it’s released as well.

That does not really answer my question though, I was wondering if those services would be added to the API. Thanks for letting me know that the stats will be available soon though!

We’re working hard on server statistics and hopefully will have it available soon.
