    • Add "power on" (and "power off") shortcuts in droplets list

      It's quite simple: in droplets list, in the "More" menu near a droplet, add a "power on" shortcut (or "power off" if droplet is on) to quick switch on droplets.

      It's frustrating open each droplet when I have to power on 5+ droplets at the same time, for example.

      • [Monitoring] Different metrics aggregations

        Currently, all metrics seem to be aggregated by doing an average over the time period. However, as one might know, an average can hide a lot of different patterns (see the book "How to lie with statistics" for in-depth examples).

        Let's take an example amongst many. Suppose that you have a cron that processes data every hour. As your database grows, the cron eats up more and more RAM. Suppose that this process lasts for 1 minute. At first, it takes 50% of RAM but now it takes 90% of RAM. Soon it's going to take more RAM than available…

        • Image Datacenter Transfer

          I would like to be able to transfer images from datacenter to datacenter. I know there is already a way to do this, but it requires changing the IP address. I think it might be useful to be able to switch databases. Maybe like a button?

          • Use a normal payment processor and take my debit card.

            Your system will not let me use my debit card, you will only accept me if i get into debt with a credit card, or if i pay the highest commissions in the world by using paypal. Bad deal.

            • IPv6 for load balancers

              So far, load balancers only get an IPv4 and no IPv6.

              In practice, this means that load balancers cannot be used if you want to provide IPv6 connectivity.

              I would love to use this feature, but only if IPv6 was made available.

                • allow Floating IPs to point to load balancers

                  This would allow me to scale an app seamlessly in real time, instead of needing to carefully time it against DNS cache latency.

                  After playing around with the new Load Balancers for a bit, It seems like an obvious extension. By the way, I'm really pleased with the feature. It seems very polished.

                  • Allow filters to apply to the /v2/actions API

                    I'd like to be able to track account actions over time. This reads like "poll the list of actions reported by /v2/actions, consuming those that are 'new' on each iteration". As of now, that means that I'll have to consume the (paginated) actions list *every time* I poll the API. It's up to me to keep track of which actions I've already seen and only record the new ones.

                    My preference would be to provide a filter "I last checked the actions API at epoch time <X>" and receive *only* actions that have occurred since then.

                    • Port the DigitalOcean Agent to Fedora, CoreOS and FreeBSD

                      Currently the DigitalOcean Agent only supports Ubuntu 14.04 and higher, CentOS 6 and higher, and Debian 8.

                      I suggest that DigitalOcean ports the Agent to cover the other 3 offerings of Fedora, CoreOS and FreeBSD.

                      • Load balancer HTTPS health checks

                        The health check does not support HTTPS.

                        The load balancer health check supports TCP ports and HTTP service but not HTTPS.

                        In my case, all http traffic is denied or redirected with a 301 to HTTPS, so the load balancer always gets a 301 and assumes the server is okay even if the HTTPS request responds with a 500.

                          • Disable droplet creation notification

                            There is many way to create droplet.

                            It will be useful to disable mail notification for creation.

                            We have two use cases :

                            > Droplet is created by our action
                            > An action automatically trigger create a droplet (for example, adding a droplet behind a load balancer because a monitoring system ask it).

                            For the first case, it could be useful to disable email notification (as we already know that we are creating a droplet).

                            But I think (email) notification should be the default behavior.

                                On the new monitoring pages, highlight (green, orange, red) the droplet's associated with a monitor to show that it is actually being monitored.

                                A lot of my droplets where here before the monitoring, and I've not actually installed the agent. I would have been prompted to install it is there was a visual queue that it wasn't installed ;)

                                • Attach Block Storage Volumes to Multiple Droplets

                                  Great thing you've done with block storage, most impressive and very useful. In the future if one block storage volume could be seen and used by multiple Droplets, it would make life sooooo much better and easier, to share install files, user files, possible backup images and much more between droplets. Great work DigitalOceanTeam!

                                  • East Indonesia Datacenter

                                    Hello everyone,

                                    I think East Indonesia should be advanced like West Indonesia. This is because Jakarta is full of population, making the environment bad. To facilitate transmigration, Indonesian government make an action, Gerakan 1000 Startup Digital/1000 Digital Startup Action. This action, however struggling with connectivity issue. By this, the gov started the Palapa Ring project. And to remove this barrier, I think you should build datacenter (at least 2) in the East Indonesia. This is based of the theory that more far away from the datacenter, the slower speed will get. I think the East Indonesia potential to be a…

                                    • Add "User data" and "Monitoring" settings to the Droplet's "Destroy" page :)

                                      Hello! When user creates droplet, there are selectable additional options:
                                      * Private networking
                                      * Backups
                                      * IPv6
                                      * User data
                                      * Monitoring

                                      First 3 are editeable after creating droplet, but if you choose rebuild droplet from image, last 2 options would be nice feature to have.
