End-to-end guide for monitoring GCP services integrating Operations Suite
Dynatrace perfectly integrates with Google Cloud Platform to provide deep visibility into the workloads that are running on this platform.
GCP supported services
Dynatrace can analyze metrics from all services available in Google Operations API. To learn about monitoring the GCP supported services, capabilities and configuration options, see Google Cloud Platform supported service metrics.
Dynatrace provides the Google Cloud Platform overview page. It includes views per Google Cloud project and lists of instances for VMs, SQLs, Cloud Functions, and Kubernetes.
If you are already monitoring GCP and the overview is not available, you need to update the GCP integration you have.
Set up metric and log ingest
To start analyzing metrics and logs from all services available in the Google Operations API, see Set up the Dynatrace GCP metric and log integration on a new GKE Autopilot cluster. recommended
For other deployment options, see Alternative deployment scenarios.
The main deployment describes how to install version 1.0 of the GCP integration on a GKE cluster. If you already have earlier versions installed, you need to migrate.
After deploying the integration, you can push metrics to Dynatrace from multiple GCP projects.
To check if your monitoring function processes and sends logs to Dynatrace properly, see Self-monitoring for the Dynatrace GCP integration.
All cloud services consume DDUs. The amount of DDU consumption per service instance depends on the number of monitored metrics and their dimensions (each metric dimension results in the ingestion of 1 data point; 1 data point consumes 0.001 DDUs). For details, see Extending Dynatrace (Davis data units).
DDU consumption applies to cloud Log Monitoring. See DDUs for Log Monitoring for details.
