*** Droplet status email notifications ***


Add the option to send email notifications when a droplet goes offline, a backup fails or other status information.

Our droplet stopped today for no reason and we only found out when we started receiving emails from infuriated customers!

Such a simple thing is absolutely critical and I am surprised it's not already provided for!

    My LON1 droplet went offline for a few hours at the start of this year. It got powered off for half an hour for no apparent reason then had no internet connection for a further 3 hours after it was rebooted. I got no notification at all and there was nothing in the network status so I have no idea what caused the glitch.

    Why not just use the free version of New Relic if you need basic monitoring?

    If it is production critical, why aren't you monitoring it yourself?

    Out of votes, but excellent suggestion
