Google Compute Engine VM discovery allows to use the google APIs to perform automatic discovery of seed hosts. Here is a simple sample configuration:
cloud: gce: project_id: <your-google-project-id> zone: <your-zone> discovery: seed_providers: gce
The following gce settings (prefixed with
cloud.gce) are supported:

The maximum elapsed time after the client instantiating retry. If the time elapsed goes past the
max_wait, client stops to retry. A negative value means that it will wait indefinitely. Defaults to
