Digital Ocean provide a metrics agent that you can install to provide metrics that can be displayed on their dashboard.
It is currently setup by downloading an install script from https://repos.insights.digitalocean.com/install.sh
The script does provide support for detecing apt vs yum etc - but I only need the apt version.
I try to keep my droplets provisioned by ansible - so for debian at least the following ansible snippet works fine.
--- - name: add apt key apt_key: url: https://repos.insights.digitalocean.com/sonar-agent.asc state: present - name: add repository apt_repository: repo: deb https://repos.insights.digitalocean.com/apt/do-agent main main filename: digitalocean-agent state: present - name: install agent apt: pkg: do-agent state: present
