Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

Stackdriver Monitoring provides visibility into the performance, uptime, and overall health of cloud-powered applications. Stackdriver collects metrics, events, and metadata from Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, hosted uptime probes, application instrumentation, and a variety of common application components including Cassandra, Nginx, Apache Web Server, Elasticsearch, and many others. Stackdriver ingests that data and generates insights via dashboards, charts, and alerts. Stackdriver alerting helps you collaborate by integrating with Slack, PagerDuty, HipChat, Campfire, and more.

This hands-on lab shows you how to monitor a Google Compute Engine virtual machine (VM) instance with Stackdriver. You'll also install monitoring and logging agents for your VM which collects more information from your instance, which could include metrics and logs from 3rd party apps.
