Add the ability to set alert thresholds for CPU, RAM and disk utilization
Setting alerts for resource usage of droplets and being notified via email can be useful when the alert thresholds are crossed.

Bandwidth alerts would also be helpful

It would also be nice to see CPU, Ram and Disc utilization when clicking on the server as well when logging in.
There are also software and hosted apps to provide server statuses until they get it up and running. I know of New Relic and scoutapp.com New Relic offers a free version but scout is used by major companies. I've heard that munin can do it as well and it's free, http://munin-monitoring.org/ but I haven't had the chance to try it.

+1 this feature saved our ass a lot on Linode.

You could install mobilepcmonitor? I use this and it also uses Apple's push notification service where you can set it to notify you of just about anything that happens on your server.

+1 I think this is a great idea in addition with graphs.
Thanks for the suggestion we are going to look into providing these alerts as soon as we have resource graphing and trending finished.
