Google Bigtable

Overview

Bigtable is Google’s NoSQL Big Data database service. It’s the same database that powers many core Google services, including Search, Analytics, Maps, and Gmail.

Use the Datadog Google Cloud Platform integration to collect metrics from Google Bigtable.

Setup

Installation

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

Log collection

Google Bigtable logs are collected with Google Cloud Logging 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 Bigtable logs from Google Cloud Logging to the pub/sub:

  1. Go to the Google Cloud Logging page and filter the Google Bigtable 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.
