Log-based metrics on log buckets are now generally available (GA). In addition to features available in the preview, the GA release includes the ability to create bucket-level log-based metrics in the Google Cloud console.

Starting with version 2.28.0, the Ops Agent limits the amount of disk space it can use to store buffer chunks. The Ops Agent creates buffer chunks when logging data can't be sent to the Logging API. Without a limit, these chunks might consume all available space, interrupting other services on the VM. When a network outage causes buffer chunks to be written to disk, the Ops Agent now uses a platform-specific amount of disk space to store the chunks.

  • Update dependency com.google.cloud:google-cloud-shared-dependencies to v3.1.1 (#1243) (fdf6b7a)
  • Update dependency org.junit.vintage:junit-vintage-engine to v5.9.2 (#1245) (e73a704)

Error Reporting

Errors generated by GKE applications (that is, applications with a MonitoredResource type of k8s_container) now support additional labels for metadata extraction. The values of the following labels will now appear in the resource filter and in various tables and displays on Error Reporting pages in the Google Cloud console:

  • The app value from your GKE YAML configuration is now used for the primary resource label (also referred to as "service").
  • The pod_name label of the k8s_container monitored-resource type is now used for the secondary resource label (also referred to as "version").

We continue to support the use of the YAML metadata labels k8s-pod/serving_knative_dev/service and k8s-pod/serving_knative_dev/revision. These labels are prioritized for users already using them over the k8s-pod/app and pod_name labels described in this note. But we encourage users to begin using the new labels.

If you do not set the k8s-pod/app label, GKE application errors continue to use the default service name of gke_instances.

Cloud Logging

The Share link feature for queries in the Logs Explorer now lets you choose whether to include an absolute time range or a relative time range. With an absolute time range, the query includes static time values for the results, so the query always returns the same results. With a relative time range, you can set a value like "last 1 hour", and the results change as time passes.

Preview: Cloud Logging now supports alerts based on matching the content of your logs. When triggered, a log-based alert notifies you that a match has appeared in your logs and opens an incident in Cloud Monitoring. You can create log-based alerts by using the Logs Explorer or the Monitoring API. For more information, see Monitoring your logs and Using log-based alerts.

Cloud Logging lets you copy logs from a Cloud Logging bucket to a Cloud Storage bucket. To learn more, see Copying log entries.

The Ops Agent is now Generally Available as version 2.0.0. This agent combines logging and metrics into a single agent. The Ops Agent is targeted toward specialized logging workloads that require higher throughput and improved resource efficiency.

For installation information, see Installing the Ops Agent. For information about migrating from an earlier version, see the transition guide.

The GA version of the Ops Agent can be configured to collect specific sets of metrics, as described in Configuring the Ops Agent. There is a small number of metrics that the GA version of the Ops Agent handles differently from the Preview versions of the Ops Agent and the Monitoring agent; see Differences in metric collection.

Cloud Monitoring

The Monitoring dashboards page in the Cloud Console now includes a collection of sample dashboards. The sample dashboards provide support for many common applications. You can preview, install, and then customize these dashboards. For more information, see Installing sample dashboards.

Cloud Monitoring is introducing metrics scopes. For a Google Cloud project, its metrics scope defines the projects whose metrics the project can view and monitor:

  • When you create a project, its metrics scope is set to self.
  • You can modify a project's metrics scope to include other Google Cloud projects, or to include AWS accounts. For more information, see Viewing metrics for multiple projects.
  • A Google Cloud project can be included in multiple metrics scopes.

For more information about metrics scopes, see Configuring your project for Cloud Monitoring.

The replacement of Cloud Monitoring Workspaces with metrics scopes is complete.

All of your existing Cloud Monitoring Workspaces have been migrated to the new data model.
