You can use two types of operations to understand the status and performance of your environment for Google Cloud Migrate for Compute Engine (formerly Velostrata):
- Monitoring, which collects metrics, events, and metadata.
- Logging, which collects log events.
Both of these are described below.
Monitoring Migrate for Compute Engine components
Migrate for Compute Engine's components, such as Cloud Extensions and the Migrate for Compute Engine Backend, provide metrics and alarms in Cloud Monitoring or vCenter. For more information, see the following topics:
- Using Cloud Monitoring
- Viewing Cloud Logging Logs
- Monitoring the Cloud Extension
- Alarms and events
- Checking the backend registration
- Health checks
Monitoring migrated VMs
Migrate for Compute Engine allows you to monitor performance of VMs migrated to Google Cloud. This includes:
- Graphs of migration performance (such as storage throughput and operation times) in Cloud Monitoring.
- Alarms and events on the vSphere web client.
Additionally, you can check the status of an individual VM by viewing its console log on either vSphere or the Migrate for Compute Engine Manager.
Because your workloads run on Google Cloud, you have additional logging and monitoring features available, including:
- Compute Engine audit logs and usage logs
- VPC flow logs for debugging network traffic
