Google Cloud Platform loadbalancing metricsetedit

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.

Load Balancing metricset fetches metrics from Load Balancing in Google Cloud Platform.

The loadbalancing metricset contains all metrics exported from the Stackdriver API. The field names are aligned to Beats naming conventions with minor modifications to their GCP metrics name counterpart.


For a description of each field in the metricset, see the exported fields section.

Here is an example document generated by this metricset:
