Google Cloud Platform gke metricsetedit

gke metricset is designed for collecting metrics from Google Kubernetes Engine. Google Cloud Monitoring supports Google Kubernetes Engine metrics, as listed in Google Cloud Monitoring Kubernetes metrics.

This metricset collects all GA Kubernetes metrics from Google Cloud Monitoring APIs. It leverages under the hood the metrics metricset. The field names are aligned to Beats naming conventions with minor modifications to their GCP metrics name counterpart.

We recommend users to define period: 1m for this metricset because in Google Cloud, GKE monitoring metrics are sampled every 60 seconds. Some of the metrics have an ingest delay up to 240 seconds.

Metricset-specific configuration notesedit


Configuration exampleedit

- module: gcp
    - gke
  project_id: "your project id"

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