Monitoring health and performance

Cloud Run for Anthos uses Cloud Monitoring, which provides performance monitoring, metrics, uptime checks, and threshold based alerts. You can also set up and use Cloud Monitoring custom metrics. Google Cloud's operations suite pricing applies.

For clusters on Google Cloud, Cloud Run for Anthos is automatically integrated with Cloud Monitoring without additional configuration. This means that the metrics for your Cloud Run for Anthos services are captured automatically when they are running.

For other clusters, you must first enable metrics by configuring your CloudRun custom resource.

You can view metrics either in Cloud Monitoring or in the Cloud Run for Anthos page in the console. Cloud Monitoring provides more charting and filtering options.
