New customers get $300 in free credits to spend on Cloud Logging.


Get started immediately

Platform logs are ingested from Google Cloud services and securely stored with no setup required. GKE workload logs are captured automatically and the Ops Agent captures workload logs from VMs.

Quickly resolve issues

Cloud Logging is integrated with Cloud Monitoring, Error Reporting, and Cloud Trace so you can troubleshoot issues across your services. Configure alerts for logs so you stay up to date on important events.

Real-time insights

Quickly spot anomalies with real-time ingestion, and use log-based metrics to build Cloud Monitoring dashboards. Log Analytics brings the power of BigQuery to Cloud Logging for deeper insights.

Key features

Logs Explorer

Logs Explorer enables you to search, sort, and analyze logs through flexible query statements, along with rich histogram visualizations, a simple field explorer, and ability to save the queries. Set alerts to notify you whenever a specific message appears in your included logs, or use Cloud Monitoring to alert on logs-based metrics you define.

Regional log buckets

Use log buckets as part of your local or industry-specific compliance strategy. Log buckets store and process your workload’s logs data only in the region you specify. These buckets feature customizable access control and retention. 

Error Reporting

Error Reporting automatically analyzes your logs for exceptions and intelligently aggregates them into meaningful error groups. See your top or new errors at a glance and set up notifications to automatically alert you when a new error group is identified.

Cloud Audit Logs

Cloud Audit Logs helps security teams maintain audit trails in Google Cloud. Achieve the same level of transparency over administrative activities and access to data in Google Cloud as in on-premises environments. Every administrative activity is recorded on a hardened, always-on audit trail, which cannot be disabled by any rogue actor.

Logs Router

Cloud Logging receives log entries through the Cloud Logging API where they pass through the Logs Router. The Logs Router checks each log entry against existing inclusion filters and exclusion filters to determine which log entries to discard, which to ingest, and which to include in exports.
