Cloud Monitoring collects metrics, events, and metadata from Google Cloud,
Amazon Web Services (AWS), hosted uptime probes, and application instrumentation. Using the
BindPlane service, you can also collect this data from over 150 common application components,
on-premise systems, and hybrid cloud systems. Google Cloud's operations suite ingests that
data and generates insights via dashboards, charts, and alerts. BindPlane is
included with your Google Cloud project at no additional cost.
To collect metrics data from your Compute Engine instances, create an Agent Policy that automatically installs and maintains the Google Cloud's operations suite agents across your fleet of VMs.
