We’re excited to announce the launch of our latest product: Monitoring. Available for free on all Droplets in every datacenter, you’ll be able to collect metrics, monitor Droplet performance, and receive alerts from the DigitalOcean control panel. It can be enabled during Droplet creation or installed on existing Droplets.
Collect metrics. With Monitoring, you’ll be able to collect and view information about the following metrics:
- Disk I/O
- Disk usage
- Inbound and outbound bandwidth
- A process list ordered by CPU or memory usage
Metrics are collected in one-minute intervals and data is retained for a month, letting you view current and historical data.
Set alert policies. Create alert policies that will notify you whenever a metric has hit your specified threshold. You can receive alert notifications via email or through Slack.
