In this fundamental-level quest, you’ll learn the ins and outs of Google Cloud's operations suite to generate insights into the health of your applications.
Dashboard API: Build your own Cloud Monitoring dashboard
Tips for shareable and reusable dashboard creation.
Cloud Audit Logs
Learn how Cloud Audit Logs maintains three audit logs: admin activity, data access, and system event.
Hybrid and multi-cloud deployments
This document discusses monitoring and logging architectures for hybrid and multi-cloud deployments.
Cloud Logging and Cloud Monitoring provide your IT Ops/SRE/DevOps teams with out-of-the box observability needed to monitor your infrastructure and applications. Cloud Logging automatically ingests Google Cloud audit and platform logs so that you can get started right away. Cloud Monitoring provides a view of all Google Cloud metrics at zero cost and integrates with a variety of providers for non Google Cloud monitoring.
Tips and tricks: Service Monitoring
Google Cloud basics
View and customize your dashboards
Reduce Mean Time to Recover (MTTR) and optimize your application’s performance with the full suite of cloud ops tools. Use dashboards to gain insights into your applications with both service and custom application metrics. Use Monitoring SLOs and alerting to help identify errors.

Identifying causes of app latency
|Log management||Log Router allows customers to control where logs are sent. All logs, including audit logs, platform logs, and user logs, are sent to the Cloud Logging API where they pass through the log router. The log router checks each log entry against existing rules to determine which log entries to discard, which to ingest, and which to include in exports.|
|Proactive monitoring||Cloud Monitoring allows you to create alerting policies to notify you when metrics, health check results, and uptime check results meet specified criteria. Integrated with a wide variety of notification channels, including Slack and PagerDuty.|
|Prometheus as a managed service||Offload the scaling and management of Prometheus infrastructure, updates, storage, and more with Managed Service for Prometheus. Avoid vendor lock-in and keep all of the open source tools you use today for visualization, alerting, and analysis of Prometheus metrics.|
|Custom visualization||Cloud Monitoring provides default out-of-the-box dashboards and allows you to define custom dashboards with powerful visualization tools to suit your needs.|
|Health check monitoring||Cloud Monitoring provides uptime checks to web applications and other internet-accessible services running on your cloud environment. You can configure uptime checks associated with URLs, groups, or resources, such as instances and load balancers.|
|Service monitoring||Service Monitoring provides out-of-the-box telemetry and dashboards that allow troubleshooting in context through topology and context graphs, plus automation of health monitoring through SLOs and error budget management.|
|Latency management||Cloud Trace provides latency sampling and reporting for App Engine, including per-URL statistics and latency distributions.|
|Performance and cost management||Cloud Profiler provides continuous profiling of resource consumption in your production applications, helping you identify and eliminate potential performance issues.|
|Security management||Cloud Audit Logs provides near real-time user activity visibility across Google Cloud.|
|Cloud Monitoring||All product features and Google Cloud metrics are included at no additional cost. Monthly pricing starts at $0.2580/ MiB for metrics data after the 150 MiB free allocation per billing account.|
|Cloud Logging||All product features and Google Cloud audit logs are included at no additional cost. Monthly pricing starts at $0.50/ GiB for log data after the 50 GiB free allocation per project.|
