Manage uptime checks

This document describes how to manage your uptime checks by using the Google Cloud Console, the Cloud Monitoring API, and the client libraries.

List all uptime checks

Console

  1. In the Cloud Console, select Monitoring or click the following button:
    Go to Monitoring
  2. In the navigation pane, select Uptime checks.

    The following example shows a sample Uptime checks page:

    Sample uptime checks overview with filters.

  3. (Optional) To restrict the uptime checks that are listed, add filters.

    Each filter is composed of a name and a value. You can set the value to be an exact match for an uptime check name, or a partial match. Matches aren't case sensitive. For example, to list all uptime checks whose name contains default, do the following:

    • Click Filter table and select Display name.
    • Enter default and then press the return key.

    If you have multiple filters, then the filters are automatically joined by a logical AND unless you insert an OR filter. The previous example uses the OR filter so that an uptime check is listed if its name matches default or Testing check.

API

To get a list of your uptime configurations, call the projects.uptimeCheckConfigs.list method. Specify the following parameters:

  • parent: The project whose uptime checks you want to list. The format is:

    projects/[PROJECT_ID]
    

To get a specific uptime check, call the projects.uptimeCheckConfigs.get method. Specify the following parameter:

  • name: The full name of the uptime check configuration.

    projects/[PROJECT_ID]/uptimeCheckConfigs/[UPTIME_CHECK_ID]
    

    You can get the [UPTIME_CHECK_ID] from the response of a create or list method. The ID isn't shown in the Google Cloud Console.

C#

public static object ListUptimeCheckConfigs(string projectId)
{
    var client = UptimeCheckServiceClient.Create();
    var configs = client.ListUptimeCheckConfigs(new ProjectName(projectId));
    foreach (UptimeCheckConfig config in configs)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(config.Name);
    }
    return 0;
}

Java

private static void listUptimeChecks(String projectId) throws IOException {
  ListUptimeCheckConfigsRequest request =
      ListUptimeCheckConfigsRequest.newBuilder().setParent(ProjectName.format(projectId)).build();
  try (UptimeCheckServiceClient client = UptimeCheckServiceClient.create()) {
    ListUptimeCheckConfigsPagedResponse response = client.listUptimeCheckConfigs(request);
    for (UptimeCheckConfig config : response.iterateAll()) {
      System.out.println(config.getDisplayName());
    }
  } catch (Exception e) {
    usage("Exception listing uptime checks: " + e.toString());
    throw e;
  }
}

Go


// list is an example of listing the uptime checks in projectID.
func list(w io.Writer, projectID string) error {
	ctx := context.Background()
	client, err := monitoring.NewUptimeCheckClient(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		return fmt.Errorf("NewUptimeCheckClient: %v", err)
	}
	defer client.Close()
	req := &monitoringpb.ListUptimeCheckConfigsRequest{
		Parent: "projects/" + projectID,
	}
	it := client.ListUptimeCheckConfigs(ctx, req)
	for {
		config, err := it.Next()
		if err == iterator.Done {
			break
		}
		if err != nil {
			return fmt.Errorf("ListUptimeCheckConfigs: %v", err)
		}
		fmt.Fprintln(w, config)
	}
	fmt.Fprintln(w, "Done listing uptime checks")
	return nil
}

Node.js

// Imports the Google Cloud client library
const monitoring = require('@google-cloud/monitoring');

// Creates a client
const client = new monitoring.UptimeCheckServiceClient();

/**
 * TODO(developer): Uncomment and edit the following lines of code.
 */
// const projectId = 'YOUR_PROJECT_ID';

const request = {
  parent: client.projectPath(projectId),
};

// Retrieves an uptime check config
const [uptimeCheckConfigs] = await client.listUptimeCheckConfigs(request);

uptimeCheckConfigs.forEach(uptimeCheckConfig => {
  console.log(`ID: ${uptimeCheckConfig.name}`);
  console.log(`  Display Name: ${uptimeCheckConfig.displayName}`);
  console.log('  Resource: %j', uptimeCheckConfig.monitoredResource);
  console.log('  Period: %j', uptimeCheckConfig.period);
  console.log('  Timeout: %j', uptimeCheckConfig.timeout);
  console.log(`  Check type: ${uptimeCheckConfig.check_request_type}`);
  console.log(
    '  Check: %j',
    uptimeCheckConfig.httpCheck || uptimeCheckConfig.tcpCheck
  );
  console.log(
    `  Content matchers: ${uptimeCheckConfig.contentMatchers
      .map(matcher => matcher.content)
      .join(', ')}`
  );
  console.log(`  Regions: ${uptimeCheckConfig.selectedRegions.join(', ')}`);
});

PHP

use Google\Cloud\Monitoring\V3\UptimeCheckServiceClient;

/**
 * Example:
 * ```
 * list_uptime_checks($projectId);
 * ```
 */
function list_uptime_checks($projectId)
{
    $uptimeCheckClient = new UptimeCheckServiceClient([
        'projectId' => $projectId,
    ]);

    $pages = $uptimeCheckClient->listUptimeCheckConfigs(
        $uptimeCheckClient->projectName($projectId)
    );

    foreach ($pages->iteratePages() as $page) {
        foreach ($page as $uptimeCheck) {
            print($uptimeCheck->getName() . PHP_EOL);
        }
    }
}

Python

def list_uptime_check_configs(project_name):
    client = monitoring_v3.UptimeCheckServiceClient()
    configs = client.list_uptime_check_configs(request={"parent": project_name})

    for config in configs:
        pprint.pprint(config)

Ruby

def list_uptime_check_configs project_id
  require "google/cloud/monitoring"

  client = Google::Cloud::Monitoring.uptime_check_service
  project_name = client.project_path project: project_id
  configs = client.list_uptime_check_configs parent: project_name

  configs.each { |config| puts config.name }
end

View details of an uptime check

Console

  1. In the Cloud Console, select Monitoring or click the following button:
    Go to Monitoring
  2. In the navigation pane, select Uptime checks.
  3. Locate the uptime check that you want to view, and then click its name.

    The following screenshot shows the uptime details for an uptime check with the name "My Uptime Check":

    Sample uptime check dashboard.

    The Uptime details page contains the following information:

    • The selected time interval. By default, the interval is 1 hour.
    • The name of the uptime check. In the sample, the name is My Uptime Check.
    • The uptime percentage and the average latency. The Percent uptime value is a percentage calculated as (S/T)*100, where S is the number of successful check responses and T is the total number of check responses, from all locations. For group checks, the values of S and T are summed across all current group members.

      For example, over a 25-minute period, an uptime check with a one-minute period running from all regions would get 25 requests from each of 6 locations, for a total of 150 requests. If the dashboard reports an 83.3% uptime, then 125 of 150 requests succeeded.

    • The Passed checks and Uptime check latency panes graphically display the number of passed checks and latency of each check as a function of time.

    • The Current status pane displays the status of the most recent checks. A green circle with a check next to a region indicates the last run of the check in that region succeeded; a red circle with an x indicates failure.

    • The Configuration pane shows the configuration of the uptime check. This data is assigned when the uptime check is created. The Check Id value corresponds to the UPTIME_CHECK_ID value in API calls.

    • The Alert Policies pane lists information about associated alert policies. In the sample dashboard, one alert policy is configured.

{
    var client = UptimeCheckServiceClient.Create();
    UptimeCheckConfig config = client.GetUptimeCheckConfig(configName);

Edit an uptime check

You can modify some fields of an uptime check. For example, you might want the check to occur more frequently, or you might want to increase the timeout associated with validation of the response. However, if your uptime check isn't configured with the correct protocol, resource type, or resource, then delete the current uptime check and create a new one.

To edit alerting policy monitors an uptime check, see Manage policies by using Cloud Console and Managing alerting policies by API .

To edit an uptime check, do the following:

Console

  1. In the Cloud Console, select Monitoring or click the following button:
    Go to Monitoring
  2. In the navigation pane, select Uptime checks.
  3. Locate the uptime check that you want to edit, then do one of the following:

    • Click More and select Edit.
    • View the uptime check details, and then click Edit.
  4. Change the values of the fields as needed. You can't modify all fields. If the custom header values of a check are hidden, you cannot make them viewable.

  5. To verify if the check works, click Test. If the test fails, see Check failures for possible causes.

  6. Click Save.

API

Call the projects.uptimeCheckConfigs.patch method. Set the parameters to the method as follows:

  • uptimeCheckConfig.name: Required. This is part of the REST URL. It is the resource name of the uptime check to edit:

    projects/PROJECT_ID/uptimeCheckConfigs/UPTIME_CHECK_ID
    

    You can get the UPTIME_CHECK_ID from the response of a create or list method. The ID isn't shown in the Cloud Console.

  • updateMask: Optional. This is a query parameter: ?updateMask=[FIELD_LIST]. [FIELD_LIST] is a comma-separated list of fields in the UptimeCheckConfig object that should be changed. For example:

    "resource.type,httpCheck.path"
    
  • The request body must contain an UptimeCheckConfig with the new field values.

If updateMask is set, then only the fields listed in updateMask replace the corresponding fields in the existing configuration. If a field has subfields, and the field is listed in the field mask but none of its subfields are, then all subfields of that field replace the corresponding fields.

If updateMask isn't set, then the configuration in the request body replaces the entire existing configuration.

The patch method returns the UptimeCheckConfig object for the altered configuration.

C#

    string newHttpPath, string newDisplayName)

There can be a delay of up to 5 minutes before you see the new uptime check results. During that time, the results of the former uptime check are displayed in the dashboards and used in alerting policies.

Delete an uptime check

We recommend that you delete an uptime check when you turn down the service or resource it monitors.

To delete an uptime check, do the following:

Console

  1. In the Cloud Console, select Monitoring or click the following button:
    Go to Monitoring
  2. In the navigation pane, select Uptime checks.
  3. Locate the uptime check that you want to edit, then do one of the following:

    • Click More and select Delete.
    • View the uptime check details, and then click Delete

API

Call the projects.uptimeCheckConfigs.delete method. Fill out the parameter as follows:

  • name: Required. This is the resource name of the uptime check configuration to delete:

    projects/PROJECT_ID/uptimeCheckConfigs/UPTIME_CHECK_ID
    

    You can get the UPTIME_CHECK_ID from the response of a create or list method. The ID isn't shown in the Cloud Console.

C#

Monitor an uptime check

We recommend that you create an alerting policy to notify you when your uptime check fails. For more information, see Create alerts for uptime checks.

Find the unique identifier of an uptime check

When your uptime check is created, Monitoring assigns it an identifier, referred to as the uptime-check ID. This identifier is embedded in the resource name for the uptime check:

projects/PROJECT_ID/uptimeCheckConfigs/UPTIME_CHECK_ID

The uptime-check ID is included in the response of Cloud Monitoring API methods that create or list uptime checks. You can also find the uptime-check ID on the Uptime details page under the Configuration section of this document. For information about how to view the Uptime details page, see the View details of an uptime check section of this document.
