Overview

Install the Google App Engine integration in your project to:

  • See your Google App Engine services metrics: memcache, task queues, datastores.
  • See metrics about requests: display percentiles, latency, cost.
  • Tag Google App Engine metrics by version and compare the performance of different versions.

You can also send custom metrics to Datadog.

Setup

Installation

If you haven’t already, set up the Google Cloud Platform integration first. There are no other installation steps.

Log collection

Google App Engine logs are collected with Stackdriver and sent to a Cloud pub/sub with an HTTP push forwarder. If you haven’t already, set up a Cloud pub/sub with an HTTP push forwarder.

Once this is done, export your Google App Engine logs from Stackdriver to the pub/sub:

  1. Go to the Stackdriver page and filter the Google App Engine logs.
  2. Click Create Export and name the sink.
  3. Choose “Cloud Pub/Sub” as the destination and select the pub/sub that was created for that purpose. Note: The pub/sub can be located in a different project.
  4. Click Create and wait for the confirmation message to show up.
