Stackdriver Logging

Aggregated Exports: Organizations and folders can now export selected log entries from all of their projects with a single sink created in the organization or folder. For more information, see Aggregated Exports.

Timestamp handling. The following changes to log entry timestamps have been made or are planned. 1. Logging does not modify the user-provided timestamp field, except to set it to the current time if it is omitted. A second field, receivedTimestamp, is set to the time Logging receives the entry. 2. The timestamp field is used to compute the age of log entries and to enforce the log retention period. Prior to the change, the receivedTimestamp field is used for that purpose. 3. Logging discards log entries whose timestamps are more than 24 hours in the future or are further in the past than the log entry's retention period. Prior to the change, future timestamps and very old timestamps are handled in an unpredictable fashion. For more information, see LogEntry and entries.write.

February 06, 2017

Stackdriver Logging

Exporting logs from organizations, folders, and billing accounts: The gcloud logging command-line tool now supports creating log sinks to export audit logs from organizations, folders, and billing accounts. This feature also supported in the API.

Viewing multiple logs: Previously in the Logs Viewer, you could view a single log or "all logs" from a single resource type. Now you can select any number of logs within a resource type to view, using the log name dropdown menu.

For example, when viewing App Engine applications, the default is now to display log entries from any of these logs: ngnix.request, stdout, request log, and stderr.

Resuming log streaming: The Logs Viewer now automatically resumes streaming logs when its browser window or tab is selected. You no longer have to restart streaming when returning to the page.

App Engine Flexible Environment: For App Engine Flexible Environment, the Logs Viewer can now display application log entries ("log lines") inside the log entry for the associated service request. This is similar to the functionality in the App Engine Standard Environment.

Deleting logs-based metrics in alerting policies: Attempting to delete a logs-based metric that is used in one or more Stackdriver Monitoring alerting policies now fails with the status FAILED_PRECONDITION. You must remove the metric from the alerting policies or delete the alerting policies prior to deleting the logs-based metric.

Remove daily API quotas: The Logging API no longer includes daily API quotas. The API still enforces short-term (per 100s) quotas on API calls, as displayed in the Stackdriver Logging API dashboard.

Logs retention and source restriction: With the implementation of the Basic and Premium service tiers in December 2016, Stackdriver Logging began enforcing retention and log source restrictions for projects that are in the Stackdriver Basic tier or are not associated with a Stackdriver account. In the Basic tier, log entries are visible for 7 days after they are received, and logs from non-GCP sources, including Amazon Web Services, are rejected.

Stackdriver Monitoring

Process owner: When sending process metrics, the Stackdriver Monitoring agent now returns a stringified UID if the process owner name is not set. Previously, the agent would not send process owner information, which was then treated by the Monitoring API as malformed input and discarded. Available in stackdriver-agent/5.5.2-359. See Determining the agent version.

Lost input from the Monitoring agent: Malformed data from the Monitoring agent could cause Stackdriver Monitoring to lose well-formed input bundled in the same request. Now, only the malformed input is lost. You do not have to update your agent for this fix.

Selectable uptime check regions: Stackdriver Monitoring now lets you select the geographic region(s) that check your service.

January 18, 2017

New AWS regions: Monitoring now supports the AWS Canada (ca-central-1) and London (eu-west-2) regions.

List logs: the Stackdriver Logging API now has "list logs" methods: organizations.logs.list and projects.logs.list.

New LogEntry fields: Fields trace and sourceLocation were added to LogEntry.

Stackdriver Monitoring

Account IDs in URLs: Monitoring has added the Stackdriver account ID to its URLs. You can now open multiple tabs for different accounts and more easily share links with coworkers. URLs without the account ID use the most recently accessed Stackdriver account.

December 08, 2016

Incident pages (Beta): See Alerting > Incidents. Each open incident now has a detail page that collects a graph of the incident, links to affected resources, and the comments made on the incident.

Metrics Explorer (Beta): See Resources > Metric Explorer. Select a monitored resource type and metric. You can aggregate data across your instances.

November 21, 2016

Stackdriver Logging

Organizations: The Stackdriver Logging API now allows both projects and organizations to own logs. A log belonging to an organization is named "organizations/[ORGANIZATION_ID]/logs/[LOG_ID]". See organizations.logs.delete.

Sinks: The Stackdriver Logging API now allows both projects and organizations to own sinks. In addition, sinks can now export log entries to destinations in other projects. See LogSink.

Stackdriver Monitoring
