I am using a droplet as an inexpensive way to supplement our existing (external) network monitoring tools for a few web applications using Python mechanize scripts. I occasionally see poor performance (requests taking 70,000 ms to complete rather than the usual 400 ms to 500 ms). This could be an application issue - but it could also be a performance issue on the droplet (or somewhere in between). Are there any tools available to me to help me understand if there was a momentary performance problem with my Droplet?
(We use other monitoring tools that give us more information, but it is still challenging to debug intermittent issues.)
