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

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

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!
