Abstract types

BucketOptions

static

BucketOptions describes the bucket boundaries used to create a histogram for the distribution. The buckets can be in a linear sequence, an exponential sequence, or each bucket can be specified explicitly. BucketOptions does not include the number of values in each bucket.

A bucket has an inclusive lower bound and exclusive upper bound for the values that are counted for that bucket. The upper bound of a bucket must be strictly greater than the lower bound. The sequence of N buckets for a distribution consists of an underflow bucket (number 0), zero or more finite buckets (number 1 through N - 2) and an overflow bucket (number N - 1). The buckets are contiguous: the lower bound of bucket i (i > 0) is the same as the upper bound of bucket i - 1. The buckets span the whole range of finite values: lower bound of the underflow bucket is -infinity and the upper bound of the overflow bucket is +infinity. The finite buckets are so-called because both bounds are finite.

exponentialBuckets

Distribution

static

Distribution contains summary statistics for a population of values. It optionally contains a histogram representing the distribution of those values across a set of buckets.

The summary statistics are the count, mean, sum of the squared deviation from the mean, the minimum, and the maximum of the set of population of values. The histogram is based on a sequence of buckets and gives a count of values that fall into each bucket. The boundaries of the buckets are given either explicitly or by formulas for buckets of fixed or exponentially increasing widths.

Although it is not forbidden, it is generally a bad idea to include non-finite values (infinities or NaNs) in the population of values, as this will render the mean and sum_of_squared_deviation fields meaningless.

Properties

Parameter

count

number

The number of values in the population. Must be non-negative. This value must equal the sum of the values in bucket_counts if a histogram is provided.

mean

number

The arithmetic mean of the values in the population. If count is zero then this field must be zero.

sumOfSquaredDeviation

number

The sum of squared deviations from the mean of the values in the population. For values x_i this is:

  Sumi=1..n^2)

Knuth, "The Art of Computer Programming", Vol. 2, page 323, 3rd edition describes Welford's method for accumulating this sum in one pass.

If count is zero then this field must be zero.

range

Object

If specified, contains the range of the population values. The field must not be present if the count is zero.

This object should have the same structure as Range

bucketOptions

Object

Defines the histogram bucket boundaries. If the distribution does not contain a histogram, then omit this field.

This object should have the same structure as BucketOptions

bucketCounts

Array of number

The number of values in each bucket of the histogram, as described in bucket_options. If the distribution does not have a histogram, then omit this field. If there is a histogram, then the sum of the values in bucket_counts must equal the value in the count field of the distribution.

If present, bucket_counts should contain N values, where N is the number of buckets specified in bucket_options. If you supply fewer than N values, the remaining values are assumed to be 0.

The order of the values in bucket_counts follows the bucket numbering schemes described for the three bucket types. The first value must be the count for the underflow bucket (number 0). The next N-2 values are the counts for the finite buckets (number 1 through N-2). The N'th value in bucket_counts is the count for the overflow bucket (number N-1).

exemplars

Array of Object

Must be in increasing order of value field.

This object should have the same structure as Exemplar

Properties

Parameter

type

string

The metric type, including its DNS name prefix. The type is not URL-encoded. All user-defined metric types have the DNS name custom.googleapis.com or external.googleapis.com. Metric types should use a natural hierarchical grouping. For example:

  "external.googleapis.com/prometheus/up"
  "appengine.googleapis.com/http/server/response_latencies"

labels

Array of Object

The set of labels that can be used to describe a specific instance of this metric type.

unit

string

The unit in which the metric value is reported. It is only applicable if the value_type is INT64, DOUBLE, or DISTRIBUTION. The supported units are a subset of The Unified Code for Units of Measure standard:

Basic units (UNIT)

  • bit bit
  • By byte
  • s second
  • min minute
  • h hour
  • d day

    Prefixes (PREFIX)

  • k kilo (103)

    Grammar

    The grammar also includes these connectors:

  • / division (as an infix operator, e.g. 1/s).

  • . multiplication (as an infix operator, e.g. GBy.d)

    The grammar for a unit is as follows:

    Expression = Component { "." Component } { "/" Component } ;

    Component = ( [ PREFIX ] UNIT | "%" ) [ Annotation ]

            | Annotation
            | "1"
            ;

    Annotation = "{" NAME "}" ;

    Notes:

  • Annotation is just a comment if it follows a UNIT and is equivalent to 1 if it is used alone. For examples, {requests}/s == 1/s, By{transmitted}/s == By/s.

  • NAME is a sequence of non-blank printable ASCII characters not containing '{' or '}'.
  • 1 represents dimensionless value 1, such as in 1/s.
  • % represents dimensionless value 1/100, and annotates values giving a percentage.

              "zone": "us-central1-a" }}

Properties

Parameter

type

string

Required. The monitored resource type. This field must match the type field of a MonitoredResourceDescriptor object. For example, the type of a Compute Engine VM instance is gce_instance.

labels

Object with string properties

Required. Values for all of the labels listed in the associated monitored resource descriptor. For example, Compute Engine VM instances use the labels "project_id", "instance_id", and "zone".

MonitoredResourceDescriptor

static

An object that describes the schema of a MonitoredResource object using a type name and a set of labels. For example, the monitored resource descriptor for Google Compute Engine VM instances has a type of "gce_instance" and specifies the use of the labels "instance_id" and "zone" to identify particular VM instances.

Different APIs can support different monitored resource types. APIs generally provide a list method that returns the monitored resource descriptors used by the API.

Properties

Parameter

name

string

Optional. The resource name of the monitored resource descriptor: "projects/{project_id}/monitoredResourceDescriptors/{type}" where {type} is the value of the type field in this object and {project_id} is a project ID that provides API-specific context for accessing the type. APIs that do not use project information can use the resource name format "monitoredResourceDescriptors/{type}".

type

string

Required. The monitored resource type. For example, the type "cloudsql_database" represents databases in Google Cloud SQL. The maximum length of this value is 256 characters.

displayName

string

Optional. A concise name for the monitored resource type that might be displayed in user interfaces. It should be a Title Cased Noun Phrase, without any article or other determiners. For example, "Google Cloud SQL Database".

description

string

Optional. A detailed description of the monitored resource type that might be used in documentation.

labels

Array of Object

Required. A set of labels used to describe instances of this monitored resource type. For example, an individual Google Cloud SQL database is identified by values for the labels "database_id" and "zone".

This object should have the same structure as LabelDescriptor

MonitoredResourceMetadata

static

Auxiliary metadata for a MonitoredResource object. MonitoredResource objects contain the minimum set of information to uniquely identify a monitored resource instance. There is some other useful auxiliary metadata. Monitoring and Logging use an ingestion pipeline to extract metadata for cloud resources of all types, and store the metadata in this message.

Properties

Parameter

systemLabels

Object

Output only. Values for predefined system metadata labels. System labels are a kind of metadata extracted by Google, including "machine_image", "vpc", "subnet_id", "security_group", "name", etc. System label values can be only strings, Boolean values, or a list of strings. For example:

  { "name": "my-test-instance",
    "security_group": ["a", "b", "c"],
    "spot_instance": false }

This object should have the same structure as Struct

userLabels

Object with string properties

Output only. A map of user-defined metadata labels.
