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

Installation

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

Data Collected
