Google Cloud Load Balancing

Crawler Crawler

Overview

Google Cloud Load Balancing gives you the ability to distribute load-balanced compute resources in single or multiple regions, to meet your high availability requirements, to put your resources behind a single anycast IP and to scale your resources up or down with intelligent Autoscaling.

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

Setup

Metric collection

Installation

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

Log collection

Google Cloud HTTP Loadbalancer logs are collected with Stackdriver and sent to a Cloud Pub/Sub with a HTTP Push forwarder. If you haven’t already, set up the Cloud Pub/sub with a HTTP push forwarder.

Once this is done, export your Google Cloud HTTP Loadbalancer logs from Stackdriver to the Pub/sub:

  1. Go to the Stackdriver page and filter the Google Cloud HTTP Loadbalancer logs.
  2. Click Create Export and name the sink accordingly.
  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.
  1. Click Create and wait for the confirmation message to show up.
