  • The new metrics agent is fully released into production. Highlights include:

    This will be the default agent used by our managed databases and Kubernetes products. All agent installations on or after this date will receive the new agent by default. On 8 July 2019, the legacy metrics agent will be deprecated, meaning users will no longer be able to view metrics from Droplets running the legacy agent. You can upgrade to the new agent at any time.
