Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


In this lab you'll use Prometheus Collector with Kubernetes Engine Monitoring to monitor and troubleshoot a Kubernetes web application called Petclinic.

Prometheus is a monitoring tool often used with Kubernetes. If you configure Kubernetes Engine Operations and include Prometheus support, then the metrics that are generated by services using the Prometheus exposition format can be exported from the cluster and made visible as external metrics in Cloud Monitoring.

What you'll do:

  • Get rich observability of your Kubernetes environment with Kubernetes Engine Monitoring

  • View Kubernetes Logs with Cloud Logging

  • Inspect the various Kubernetes components in your application

  • Monitor Prometheus metrics with Cloud Monitoring
