Google Cloud IoT

Crawler Crawler

Overview

Cloud IoT is a fully managed service that allows you to easily and securely connect, manage, and ingest data from millions of globally dispersed devices.

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

Setup

Installation

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

Log collection

Google Cloud IoT 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 Cloud IoT logs from Stackdriver to the pub/sub:

  1. Go to the Stackdriver page and filter the Google Cloud IoT 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.
