Quickly resolve issues
Supported across Google Cloud services and integrated with Cloud Monitoring, Error Reporting, and Cloud Trace so you can quickly troubleshoot issues across your infrastructure and applications.
Secure, scalable, and fully managed
With sub-second ingestion latency, terabyte per-second ingestion rate, and exabytes of logs stored each month, you can securely store all of your logs from any source in one place with no management overhead.
Combine the power of Cloud Logging with BigQuery for advanced analysis and use log-based metrics to build real-time Cloud Monitoring dashboards.
Logs explorer enables you to search, sort, and analyze logs through flexible query statements, along with rich histogram visualizations, simple field explorers, and ability to save the queries.
Custom logs / Ingestion API
Write any custom log, from on-premises or another cloud, using our public write APIs.
Alerting on logs
Integrate with Cloud Monitoring to set alerts on the logs events, including the logs-based metrics you have defined.
Real production problems can be hidden in mountains of data. Error Reporting helps you see the problems through the noise by automatically analyzing your logs for exceptions and intelligently aggregating them into meaningful error groups.
With Error Reporting, you can see at a glance your top or new errors 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. With this tool, enterprises can attain the same level of transparency over administrative activities and accesses 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. Data access logs can be customized to best suit your organization’s need around monitoring and compliance.
