Cloud Monitoring: Qwik Start

50 minutes 1 Credit


Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


Cloud Monitoring provides visibility into the performance, uptime, and overall health of cloud-powered applications. Cloud Monitoring collects metrics, events, and metadata from Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, hosted uptime probes, application instrumentation, and a variety of common application components including Cassandra, Nginx, Apache Web Server, Elasticsearch, and many others. Cloud Monitoring ingests that data and generates insights via dashboards, charts, and alerts. Cloud Monitoring alerting helps you collaborate by integrating with Slack, PagerDuty, HipChat, Campfire, and more.

This hands-on lab shows you how to monitor a Compute Engine virtual machine (VM) instance with Cloud Monitoring. You'll also install monitoring and logging agents for your VM which collects more information from your instance, which could include metrics and logs from 3rd party apps.
