  1. Graph for Load Average

    Add a graph for load average on the Graphs section.

    CPU percentage is good, but load average is what I'm interested about, as it tells me whether the CPUs are queueing tasks.

    80% CPU usage could be the normal state of a machine, yet a load average of 3 on a 2 cores droplet is something to worry about.

    • Add a 'half an hour' time frame for monitoring graphs

      6 hours as the bottom limit for the time filter at the Graphs section is a lot.

      The fact that you display the graphs with only 400px makes it hard to see the information in detail with 6hs of data being displayed.

      Making the graphs wider will help a little bit, but I really don't need to see 6hs of information all the time. I mostly care about the last 15 minutes. I just want to see longer periods when something is wrong.

      • API for Security History for integration into Log Management / SIEM solution

        Expose the data from Settings -> Security -> Security History via API. This would allow customers to integrate account level details and security relevant info (user login with IP addresses, changes to DNS, token changes, etc.) into their log management / SIEM solution, to increase security awareness around account activity.

            API Feature Request
            December 31, 2013 1.8k views


            Hi,

            I am starting to develop custom application utilize DigitalOcean API to manage droplet, however it seems that some feature is missing,

            1. I want to be able to access VNC console, how to get the droplet's VNC information via API?
            2. I want to show droplet usage statistic (CPU, RAM, Disk, Bandwidth). how to get all these parameters via API?

            It'd be a good idea to add those things as API features.

            Thanks in advance.

              • Add the option to use traditional 3.5" hard drives in Volumes, at the fraction of the specified price

                The new Block Storage option is SSD-based storage. SSDs are expensive, and $0.10/GB is kinda ridiculous.

                I own an image host where I chose DO as my "surrogate" provider to start. As images came in, disk space was scarce, and had to move away to gain more disk space.

                When I first heard about Block Storage, I was thrilled because I wanted to return to DO. But after hearing that the Block Storage is SSD-based and quite pricey, I had to scrap that idea.

                It'd be nice if DO had the option to choose either the popular SSD storage @…

                • DNS UI update is a step back

                  The new DNS UI that they have been testing and introduced today is a step back in a usability. The great thing about managing DNS on DO was having a clear indication of my records with color coding and white space separation. This update has made the panel very convoluted and unintuitive, please bring back the color coding.

                  • IPv6 MX DNS

                    DigitalOcean DNS - IPv6 MX Records

                    This is my configuration for a Twitter-specific mail server I run in the London DO DC.

                    MX twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 138.68.162.84
                    MX twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk
                    AAAA twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 2a03:b0c0:d0::146:e001
                    AAAA tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 2a03:b0c0:d0::146:e001
                    A twitter.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 178.62.121.41
                    A tw.mail.maxsaxedesign.co.uk 138.68.162.84

                    I am unable to configure IPv6 MX records on DigitalOcean DNS and Fasthosts DNS (need to pester them too).

                    I have found a way round the issue.
                    Point the MX to a subdomain which has A and AAAA records tied to the subdomain. This way it will be forwarded for the MX to use.

                    MX > A > IPv4 address …

                    • disk utilization for volumes

                      Currently the Graphs do not display disk utilization for attached volumes. This should be added.

                        I would like to offer Digital Ocean 1-Click App a pre-install of NoMoreCaptchas.com in WordPress. We have 6 other CMS's too. NoMoreCaptchas eliminates the need for CAPTCHA or re-ReCAPTCHA. NoMoreCaptchas is completely passive to the user, helps eliminate spam bots, and brute force attacks.

                                  Docker Cloud (https://cloud.docker.com) has started to roll out their new Swarm mode capabilities. We have been using their standard mode, with Digital Ocean as provider. However with the new Swarm mode the cloud providers are limited to AWS (and Azure coming soon), and Digital Ocean is not in this list. I would really not want to change from Digital Ocean, and hope that Docker Cloud are building on that as well, but I cannot see any progress on that from their side. Is it aware from your side that you are not in their list of cloud providers…

                                  • The droplet images should have extended descriptions of what each image offers.

                                    On the droplet set up page, there should be an extended description for what each image contains. There's a lot of abbreviations for things and they're not all obvious.

                                    • update domain copy javascript link

                                      Just a little UI thing. I love that you guys have the "copy" buttons for putting stuff in to my clipboard. On the Domain management page it has the the copy button for the nameservers but copies the period (.) in as well. Should copy a . after my TLD

                                      • Upload DNS .txt

                                        I would like to get rid of CloudFlare. But first I need to transfer my DNS records here. Is there any way to upload a .txt file? CloudFlare can already export them, so yeah...

                                        • Require entry of Droplet Name on Destroy/Rebuild for DO GUI

                                          Perhaps it may be best to require entry of the droplet name into the confirmation modal for both destroy and rebuild.

                                          I've recently made the mistake of destroying the wrong droplet during hasty dev, preparing and validating automation of deployments from images.

                                          Another suggested displaying the droplet name in the confirmation modal and that would help but I feel it may also go ignored. The practicality of having the end user regurgitate the proper droplet name seams to me the best way to insure realization of their action.

                                          Another suggested password entry into the confirmation modal. I see that as…
