Platform Overview

Here are the latest improvements to the DigitalOcean platform:

April 18

April 10

April 9

  • The new metrics agent is fully released into production. The new agent makes it easier for users to contribute custom metrics, adds an additional load average plot, supports Fedora 27, allows users to opt out of process name collection, and will be the default agent used by our managed databases and Kubernetes products.

    All agent installations on or after this date will receive the new agent by default. On 8 July, 2019, the legacy metrics agent will be deprecated, meaning users will no longer be able to view metrics from Droplets running the legacy agent. You can upgrade to the new agent at any time.

  • In order to help customers track their credits, beginning in April we will send invoice emails when customers use any resources during a billing period, regardless of an account’s outstanding balance. Previously, invoices were sent only when the outstanding balance exceeded the threshold for automatic payments.

  • The Zabbix and Mastodon third-party One-Click applications were released.
