DigitalOcean Monitoring is a free, opt-in service that gathers metrics about Droplet-level resource utilization. It provides additional Droplet graphs and supports configurable metrics alert policies with integrated email Slack notifications to help you track the operational health of your infrastructure.
If you no longer wish to use the metrics agent, you can remove the package using your native package manager.
On Debian-based operating systems (like Ubuntu), use
sudo apt-get purge do-agent
On RHEL-based operating systems (like CentOS and Fedora), use
sudo yum remove do-agent
The service will be stopped and the package will be removed from your system. You can reinstall the metrics agent in the future by reinstalling the
do-agent package with your package manager (e.g.,
apt-get install do-agent or
yum install do-agent).
To remove the metrics agent repository from your Droplet, delete the repository configuration file.
On Ubuntu and Debian Droplets:
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/digitalocean-agent.list
On CentOS or Fedora Droplets:
sudo rm /etc/yum.repos.d/digitalocean-agent.repo
The metrics agent repository configuration will be removed from your Droplet. You can reinstall the metrics agent in the future by running the installation script, which will add the repository to your Droplet again.
