Configure metrics collection

Apigee hybrid metrics collection is disabled by default; you must provide a few configuration properties in your overrides file to enable hybrid to send the collected metrics data to Cloud Operations.

Required configuration

To enable Apigee hybrid to send collected metrics data to Cloud Operations, you must provide these configuration settings in your overrides file:

gcp:
  region: $GCP_REGION
  projectID: $GCP_PROJECT_ID

metrics:
  serviceAccountPath: $SERVICE_ACCOUNT_PATH

Where:

  • $GCP_REGION identifies the GCP region where the apigee-logger and the apigee-metrics push their data.
  • $GCP_PROJECT_ID identifies the Google Cloud project where apigee-logger and the apigee-metrics push their data.
  • $SERVICE_ACCOUNT_PATH is the path on your filesystem to the GCP service account key file that was downloaded during the Apigee hybrid installation procedure. The service account associated with the key must have the Monitoring Metrics Writer role. For details on creating service accounts, see Step 5: Add service accounts.

Example:

gcp:
  region: us-central1
  projectID: acme-project

metrics:
  serviceAccountPath: ./service-accounts/metrics-sa.json

How to disable metrics collection

To disable metrics collection, add the following configuration to your overrides and apply it to the cluster:
