Google Cloud Platform compute metricset

This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is less mature than official GA features and is being provided as-is with no warranties. Beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

Compute Metricset to fetch metrics from Compute Engine Virtual Machines in Google Cloud Platform. No Monitoring or Logging agent is required in your instances to use this Metricset.

The compute Metricset contains all metrics exported from the Stackdriver API. The field names have been left untouched for people already familiar with them.

Extra labels and metadata are also extracted using the Compute API. This is enough to get most of the info associated with a metric like Compute labels and metadata and metric specific Labels.

Fields and labels

  • instance.firewall.dropped_bytes_count: Incoming bytes dropped by the firewall.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
  • instance.firewall.dropped_packets_count: Incoming packets dropped by the firewall.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
  • instance.cpu.reserved_cores: Number of cores reserved on the host of the instance.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
  • instance.cpu.utilization: The fraction of the allocated CPU that is currently in use on the instance.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
  • instance.cpu.usage_time: Usage for all cores in seconds.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
  • instance.disk.read_bytes_count: Count of bytes read from disk.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • device_name: The name of the disk device.
    • storage_type: The storage type: pd-standard, pd-ssd, or local-ssd.
    • device_type: The disk type: ephemeral or permanent.
  • instance.disk.read_ops_count: Count of disk read IO operations.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • device_name: The name of the disk device.
    • storage_type: The storage type: pd-standard, pd-ssd, or local-ssd.
    • device_type: The disk type: ephemeral or permanent.
  • instance.disk.write_bytes_count: Count of bytes written to disk

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • device_name: The name of the disk device.
    • storage_type: The storage type: pd-standard, pd-ssd, or local-ssd.
    • device_type: The disk type: ephemeral or permanent.
  • instance.disk.write_ops_count: Count of disk write IO operations.

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • device_name: The name of the disk device.
    • storage_type: The storage type: pd-standard, pd-ssd, or local-ssd.
    • device_type: The disk type: ephemeral or permanent.
  • instance.uptime: How long the VM has been running, in seconds

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
  • instance.network.received_bytes_count: Count of bytes received from the network

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • loadBalanced: Whether traffic was sent from an L3 loadbalanced IP address assigned to the VM. Traffic that is externally routed from the VM’s standard internal or external IP address, such as L7 loadbalanced traffic, is not considered to be loadbalanced in this metric.
  • instance.network.received_packets_count: Count of packets received from the network

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • loadBalanced: Whether traffic was sent from an L3 loadbalanced IP address assigned to the VM. Traffic that is externally routed from the VM’s standard internal or external IP address, such as L7 loadbalanced traffic, is not considered to be loadbalanced in this metric.
  • instance.network.sent_bytes_count: Count of bytes sent over the network

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • loadBalanced: Whether traffic was sent from an L3 loadbalanced IP address assigned to the VM. Traffic that is externally routed from the VM’s standard internal or external IP address, such as L7 loadbalanced traffic, is not considered to be loadbalanced in this metric.
  • instance.network.sent_packets_count: Count of packets sent over the network

    • instance_name: The name of the VM instance.
    • loadBalanced: Whether traffic was sent from an L3 loadbalanced IP address assigned to the VM. Traffic that is externally routed from the VM’s standard internal or external IP address, such as L7 loadbalanced traffic, is not considered to be loadbalanced in this metric.

This is a default metricset. If the host module is unconfigured, this metricset is enabled by default.
