Google Cloud Platform pubsub 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.

PubSub metricsetf fetches metrics from Pub/Sub topics and subscriptions in Google Cloud Platform.

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

No special permissions are needed apart from the ones detailed in the module section of the docs.

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


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