Clean Up Unused IP Addresses

Clean Up Unused IP Addresses

Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

In this lab, you use Cloud Functions and Cloud Scheduler to identify and clean up wasted cloud resources. On Google Cloud, static IP addresses are a free resource when they’re attached to a load balancer or virtual machine (VM) instance. When a static IP address is reserved, but not used, it accumulates an hourly charge. In apps that heavily depend on static IP addresses and large-scale dynamic provisioning, this waste can become significant over time.

What you'll do

  • Create a Compute Engine VM with a static external IP address and a separate unused static external IP address

  • Deploy a Cloud Function to identify unused addresses

  • Create a Cloud Scheduler job to schedule the function to run by using an HTTP trigger
