GCP Logs

Last Updated: Nov. 08, 2023

Google Cloud Platform offers integrated monitoring and observability tools that enable users to gather and analyze logs from their GCP resources. Send these GCP logs to Coralogix to search, analyze, and visualize your data. Gain insights into application behavior, identify errors, and troubleshoot problems effectively.

Overview

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) logs encompass all types of log entries generated across various Google Cloud Platform services and resources. These logs capture a wide range of information, including activities, events, and system operations related to your entire GCP environment. This can include logs from compute instances, databases, networking, security, access, and more.

The integration collects logs that are published to a GCP Pub/Sub topic to which one has a subscription, referenced by a subscription name.

Benefits

By integrating Coralogix seamlessly with your GCP environment, you can gain a comprehensive understanding of your system’s performance, user experiences, and security. This enables you to proactively detect issues, troubleshoot effectively, and optimize your resources, ultimately improving the reliability and efficiency of your applications.
