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):
A. Monitoring, which collects metrics, events, and metadata.
B. 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 Velostrata Backend, provide metrics and alarms in Stackdriver or vCenter. For more information, see the following topics:
- Using Stackdriver Monitoring
- Viewing Stackdriver 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 GCP. This includes:
- Graphs of migration performance (such as storage throughput and operation times) in Stackdriver Monitoring.
- Alarms and events on the vSphere web client.
- Monitoring VMs on Compute Engine.
Additionally, you can check the status of an individual VM by viewing its console log on either vSphere or the Velostrata Manager.
Because your workloads run on GCP, you have additional logging and monitoring features available, including:
Disabling Stackdriver Monitoring
You can disable the Stackdriver Monitoring and Logs in the Velostrata Manager. See Disabling Stackdriver Monitoring.
