Google Cloud platform logs

This document provides basic information about the Google Cloud platform logs that are available in Cloud Logging, as well as next steps for viewing and managing platform logs.

Overview

Logging receives, indexes, and stores log entries from Google Cloud services. Google Cloud platform logs are service-specific logs that can help you debug and troubleshoot issues, as well as better understand the Google Cloud services you're using.

The Google Cloud platform logs visible to you in Cloud Logging vary, depending on which Google Cloud resources you're using in your Google Cloud project or organization.

When using this document, note the following:

  • Not all Google Cloud services implement platform logs. For an expanding (non-exhaustive) list of the services that implement platform logs, see the following Index of Google Cloud platform logs.
  • Each Google Cloud service that implements platform logs manages its own configuration. Refer to service-specific documentation to determine whether the service enables platform logs by default and how to enable or disable platform logs.

Index of Google Cloud platform logs

Following are tables of some of the Google Cloud platform logs supported by Cloud Logging. To understand the data contained in the tables, see Log entry structure on this page.

Understand and manage platform logs

The following sections provide basic information about using and managing platform logs in Cloud Logging.

Log entry structure

Cloud Logging represents logs using a single data type, LogEntry, which defines certain common data for all log entries as well as the payloads that Google Cloud services can include. For detailed information about the contents of log entries, see the Logging API reference for the LogEntry type.

The index of platform logs highlights the following characteristics of log entries:

  • Log ID: The URL-encoded identifier within logName. For example, if the broader log name is organizations/1234567890/logs/cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com%2Factivity, then the log ID is cloudresourcemanager.googleapis.com%2Factivity.

    Note that if the log ID string in a log entry's logName field is prefixed by serviceName.googleapis.com, it is a Google Cloud platform log entry.

  • Monitored resource: The resource from which the log entry originated. This consists of a resource type from the Monitored resource list and additional label values that identify a specific instance.

  • Payload: The log entry payload, which can be represented as textPayload or jsonPayload.

View logs

There are several ways to view your platform log entries:

Route logs

You can control how your log entries are routed and stored. The Log Router checks each log entry against existing rules to determine which log entries to discard, which log entries to store in Cloud Logging, and which log entries to include in exports to other destinations.

For details, see Routing and storage overview: Log Router.

Logs retention

Log entries are stored in Logging buckets for a specified length of time and are then deleted. For more information, see Logs retention periods.

Pricing

For information on logs pricing, see Logging pricing.
