DO Ideas 2

Add Ram & Disk Usage to Resource graphs.

I like the new resource usage graph but it needs the ram usage.

    I'm glad to announce that we’ve just released an update to our Droplet graphs. These new graphs, powered by an open-source monitoring agent, now include both RAM and disk usage. You can find all the details in this blog post: https://www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/improved-graphs/ This new agent opens up a lot of possibilities for us to provide greater insight into your Droplets. If you're interested in being one of the first to know as well roll out additional monitoring and alerting features, sign up here: https://www.digitalocean.com/products/monitoring/ Thanks!

    Did you manage to implement this ? I still can't see it on the graph.

    I wold like to view a RAM chart in graph sections

    Any updates on this one, DO? It would be great if we could see current RAM and CPU usage, as well as total disk and bandwidth usage.

    The graphs are cool, but I would need to see those stats at a first glance, like:

    Memory: 21% (199 MB / 993 MB)
    CPU: 4%
    Disk: 17% (3.3 GB / 20 GB)
    Bandwidth: 8% (163 GB / 2 TB)

    Hi, is there a release date for this? Thanks!

    Why write an analytics service from the ground up when there are so many monitoring systems out there that can provide this and much more? e.g. https://github.com/prometheus

    They already have disk usage read write statics, but if you need to check free storage left on your server you can just type the "df -h" command.

    Yep, disk and RAM usage would be great to have!

    I respectfully disagree @Nicholas P. Cole, disk is not a big bottleneck here since digital ocean uses SSD.

  • Nicholas P. Cole commented

    While the host's load averages might be interesting to see, there are many other variables (if a process is disk-bound rather than CPU-bound, as a simple example) that might affect performance and thus those numbers by themselves wouldn't be very useful.

    You would add this simple information, if you don't put too many droplet on one host..

  • Ihor Vorotnov commented

    +3 for that. Just an overall memory usage graph is a must for quick and easy server monitoring from control panel. And if you see it goes up - then connect to the server and see what's going on there.

    you can use Landscape to monitor if your server is running Ubuntu 14.04 Alpha 2

    I see that some people vote for this when they want stats like apache memory usage. If you need detailed mem stats, install something like Munin. DO can only examine activity from the outside of your droplet. Like CPU and disk usage, this will only give you a number of how active your droplet is in memory usage but not what is causing the activity. For CPU you can see how active the droplet is, but not which process is causing the activity. Same goes for disk: you can see disk throughput, but not which files are involved.

    There is a nice article on munin here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-munin-on-an-ubuntu-vps

    Mem usage is needed as bandwidth, disk and cpu. It's essential stat for droplet.

    This would be great, and displaying the actual available RAM (from the +/- buffers/cache row) would be most helpful

  • Cory Close commented

    RAM is my primary gating factor, so keeping an eye on it in the control panel woudl be awesome.

  • Barry Briggs commented

    I think an Apache memory usage graph would be great, but also MySQL and maybe even an overall Server mem usage graph. Probably more useful than the existing CPU graph.

  • Asgarnian commented

    I would also love that feature!

  • LazyTiger commented
    September 11, 2018 18:08

    I totally agree with that. I recently found the graphs and they were really helpful. However, one important thing, which also directly influences the choice of the correct plan, is missing: the RAM usage!

  • Leland commented

    This would be a great feature to have and one I feel that is needed under the graphs.
