DigitalOcean - Take snapshot

- Snapshots are on-demand full copy disk images of Droplets. Snapshots are not incremental.
- We also backup snapshots offsite for additional resiliency.
- You can use snapshots to create new Droplets, restore a Droplet to the point in time, or migrate a Droplet to a different region.
- Snapshots are retained indefinitely until manually deleted.
- Snapshots are independent of the Droplets used to create them.
- You can create up to one snapshot every 10 minutes.
- We recommend turning off your Droplet before taking a snapshot to ensure data consistency.
- Snapshots can take up to 1 minute per GB of data used by your Droplet.
- Snapshots cost $0.05/GiB/month based on the size of the snapshot (not the size of the filesystem).
- There is a minimum charge of $0.01, which may apply for very small snapshots or snapshots that exist only for a short time.
- There is no additional charge for making a snapshot available in multiple regions.

DigitalOcean - Graphs Monitor

Your Droplet comes with a Simple Graphs Monitor. To enable extended metrics and enhanced monitoring features, like metrics-based alerting, you need to install the metrics agent on your Droplet. You can do this automatically when you create a Droplet, or manually after you create a Droplet.

DigitalOcean Metrics Agent Monitoring is a free, opt-in service that gathers metrics about Droplet-level resource utilization. It provides additional Droplet graphs and supports configurable metrics alert policies with integrated email Slack notifications to help you track the operational health of your infrastructure.

1) Installing the Metrics Agent During Droplet Creation
2) Installing the Metrics Agent Manually

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/monitoring/how-to/install-agent/

View the Enhanced Graphs

Once the metrics agent is enabled, click the Droplet’s name, which takes you to the Graphs section of your Droplet’s detail page. The extended metrics will be available once the metrics agent checks in and the initial data points are processed, which may take a few minutes.

The times displayed in the graphs are in your local time zone, determined by your browser. Use the drop-down menu to adjust the time window displayed and mouse over the graphs to view detailed information.
