Comprehensive observability at scale

Cloud Operations for GKE aggregates logs, events, and metrics from your Kubernetes environment on GKE to help you understand your application's behavior in production. This rich, unified set of signals helps developers build higher quality applications faster and helps operators speed root cause analysis and reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR).
