For Google Cloud and other environments
Cloud Monitoring offers automatic out-of-the-box metric collection dashboards for Google Cloud services. It also supports monitoring of hybrid and multicloud environments.
Identify trends, prevent issues
Metrics, events, and metadata are displayed with rich query language that helps identify issues and uncover patterns. Service-level objectives measure user experience and improve collaboration with developers.
Reduce monitoring overhead
One integrated service for metrics, uptime monitoring, dashboards, and alerts reduces time spent navigating between systems. Observability in context makes metrics available within Google Cloud resource pages.
Automatically infer or custom define service-level objectives (SLOs) for applications and get alerted when SLO violations occur.
Instrument your application to monitor application and business-level metrics via Cloud Monitoring.
Google Cloud integration
Discover and monitor all Google Cloud resources and services, with no additional instrumentation, integrated right into the Google Cloud console.

Concepts in service monitoring
Get familiar with service-level indicators (SLIs) and service-level objectives (SLOs).
Creating a service-level indicator
Create service-level objectives (SLOs) for custom and automatically detected services. Identify metrics you want to use in your service-level indicators (SLIs).
|SLO monitoring||Automatically infer or custom define service-level objectives (SLOs) for applications and get alerted when SLO violations occur.|
|Custom metrics||Instrument your application to monitor application and business-level metrics via Cloud Monitoring.|
|Google Cloud integration||Discover and monitor all Google Cloud resources and services, with no additional configuration, integrated right into the Google Cloud console.|
|Monitoring agent||Deploy our open source agent on your Google Cloud hosts and other environments to collect metrics and monitor applications.|
|Logging integration||Drill down from dashboards and charts to logs. Create, visualize, and alert on metrics based on log data.|
|Dashboards||Get core visibility into your cloud resources and services with no configuration. Define custom dashboards and take advantage of Google’s powerful data visualization tools.|
|Group/cluster support||Define relationships based on resource names, tags, security groups, projects, regions, accounts, and other criteria. Use those relationships to create targeted dashboards and topology-aware alerting policies.|
|Alerting||Configure alerting policies to notify you when events occur or particular system or custom metrics violate rules that you define. Use multiple conditions to define complex alerting rules. Receive notifications via email, SMS, Slack, PagerDuty, and more.|
|Uptime monitoring||Monitor the availability of your internet-accessible URLs, VMs, APIs, and load balancers from probes around the globe. Use Cloud Monitoring alerting to be notified of outages.|
