Google Container Engine

Crawler Crawler

Overview

Google Container Engine is a powerful cluster manager and orchestration system for running your Docker containers.

Get metrics from Google Container Engine to:

  • Visualize the performance of your Container Engine containers
  • Correlate the performance of your Container Engine containers with your applications

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 Container Engine 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 Container Engine logs from Stackdriver to the Pub/sub:

  1. Go to the Stackdriver page and filter Google Container Engine 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.
