Stackdriver Kubernetes Monitoring

Stackdriver Kubernetes Monitoring is an add-on to Kubernetes v1.10.2-gke.0 that provides integrated monitoring and logging support with Stackdriver. There some important aspects of this release you should be aware of:

  • Kubernetes Engine. This Beta release supports only Kubernetes version v1.10.2-gke.0 clusters running on Google Cloud Platform's Kubernetes Engine.

  • Prometheus. This Beta release additionally supports application monitoring using Prometheus.

  • Opt-in. This Beta is an opt-in feature for new and existing Kubernetes clusters. If you do not choose to opt in, you will continue to use the current Stackdriver support for Kubernetes Engine as described in the Monitoring and Logging pages for Kubernetes.

  • Incompatibilities. This Beta release is incompatible with the current Stackdriver support. For a discussion of the incompatibilities, see Incompatibilities.


Single dashboard observability. Explore your Kubernetes clusters, workloads, and services in a single Stackdriver Monitoring dashboard. Drill down to inspect entities including nodes, pods, namespaces, and containers.

Easy installation. Click a single checkbox when you create your Kubernetes Engine clusters, or switch support from the Stackdriver current support for Kubernetes Engine to the new support.

Clear feedback. Each Kubernetes entity is marked with an icon if an incident is in progress, letting you find and focus on problems more quickly.
