Metrics are gathered from all resources using the included Prometheus instance. This instance scrapes and stores the metrics locally.
Only metrics queried in our monitoring generator are forwarded - this allowlist is automatically generated. If you’d like a new metric to be queryable in a centralized manner, you must create a dashboard panel for it.
We no longer support multi-instance dashboards but the cloud-team is working on a replacement.
- To add a new dashboard to all managed instances, follow the Creating a new individual dashboard procedure.
Traces from Cloud instances are now all available in GCP tracing. To view a trace, follow the same How to use traces procedure. After clicking “View Trace” it may take a minute or two for the trace to become available in GCP. If the trace doesn’t immediately render, wait a little bit and refresh the page.
Application logs are automatically forwarded from the Cloud instances and made available in Google Cloud Logging. To view logs for a given Cloud instance, visit https://console.cloud.google.com/logs and select the project for the desired instance. Then execute the correct corresponding query.
