Monitoring Instances

Use this topic to learn how to monitor Cloud Filestore instances. You do this by using Stackdriver Monitoring to access performance statistics for your Cloud Filestore instances. If you don't have a Stackdriver account, create one by following the instructions at Creating a Stackdriver account.

Monitoring an instance

To see Cloud Filestore performance metrics in Stackdriver, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Stackdriver Monitoring
  2. Using the drop-down menu at the top right of the Stackdriver Monitoring console, select the Stackdriver account that contains the GCP project in which your Cloud Filestore instance resides.
  3. In the left-hand navigation, choose Resources and then choose Metrics Explorer.
  4. In the Find resource type and metric field, type filestore and select the Filestore Instance resource type.
  5. Select a metric. Available metrics are as follows:

    • Bytes written: Number of bytes written.
    • Bytes read: Number of bytes read.
    • Disk read operation count: Number of disk read operations. If the Cloud Filestore instance caches the data, some read operations will not be reflected as disk reads.
    • Disk write operation count: Number of disk write operations. If the Cloud Filestore instance caches the data, some write operations will not be reflected as disk writes.
    • Free disk bytes: Number of free disk bytes.
    • Free disk bytes percent: Percentage of free disk bytes.
    • Procedure call count: Returns the same information as the nfsstat -s command.
    • Time (in milliseconds) spent on disk read operations: Time spent on disk reads.
    • Time (in milliseconds) spent on disk write operations: Time spent on disk writes.
    • Used disk bytes: Number of used disk bytes.
    • Used disk bytes percent: Percentage of used disk bytes.
  6. Optionally, use the Filter field to apply a filter in order to limit the metric information displayed. For more information about filtering Stackdriver Monitoring metrics, see Filtering.

  7. Optionally, use the Group By field to group the metric information displayed. For more information about grouping Stackdriver Monitoring metrics, see Grouping.
  8. Optionally, use the Aggregation field to apply an aggregate function to your selected metrics. For more information about aggregating Stackdriver Monitoring metrics, see Aggregation.
