DigitalOcean releases free monitoring service

The service will provide insight into the resource utilization and operational health of cloud servers

DigitalOcean, the American cloud infrastructure provider launched a monitoring service that provides insight into the resource utilization and operational health of every Droplet or cloud server.

Through this service, the company says that developers can collect and visualize metrics in graphs, monitor the performance of a cloud server and receive alerts in one intuitive interface, with no configuration required.

Julia Austin, CTO of DigitalOcean said:

Our goal is to simplify the complexities of infrastructure by offering a simple and robust platform for developers to easily launch and scale their applications.

A monitoring service is an important feature for developers, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it for free regardless of the number of Droplets.

The company explains that the monitoring service measures each cloud server’s CPU, memory, disk utilization, disk reads and writes, network traffic and top processes. Metrics are collected at one-minute intervals and the data is retained to enable users to view both up-to-the-minute and historical data. Developers can also create alert policies and receive notifications by email or Slack when usage crosses a specified threshold.
