USAGE 🔗

Interpreting Built-in dashboards 🔗

Compute Engine Instance

  • CPU Percent - Percentage of CPU used by the instance.

    ../../_images/instance-cpu-percent.png

  • CPU Percent Trend - Trend of percentage of CPU used by the instance.

    ../../_images/instance-cpu-percent-trend.png

  • Disk I/O Operations - Number of read/write operations performed by the instance during each interval.

    ../../_images/instance-disk-io.png

  • Disk I/O / min - List of counts of all the different of disk operations by the instance.

    ../../_images/instance-disk-io-per-min.png

  • Disk I/O Bytes / min - Number of bytes written to/read from disk per min.

    ../../_images/instance-disk-io-bytes-per-min.png

  • Network I/O Packets - Number of packets received from/sent to the network.

    ../../_images/instance-network-io-packets.png

  • Network I/O Bytes / min - Number of bytes received from/sent to the network by the instance.

    ../../_images/instance-network-io-bytes-per-min.png

  • Network I/O Bytes / min Trend - Number of bytes received from/sent to the network by the instance.

Compute Engine Instances

  • Active Instances - Number of active instances.

  • Top Instances by CPU Percent - List of top 5 instances by percent of CPU used.

    ../../_images/instances-top-instances-by-cpu.png

  • CPU Percent Trend - Trend of percent CPU used by instances.

    ../../_images/instances-cpu-percent-trend.png

  • Number of Disk Opertions - Aggregated disk read/write operations of all instances.

    ../../_images/instances-disk-operations.png

  • Disk I/O - Aggregated count of bytes read from/written to disk.

    ../../_images/instances-disk-io.png

  • Disk Metrics 24h Growth Percent - 24 hour growth percent of available disk metrics.

    ../../_images/instances-disk-metrics-growth.png

  • Network Bytes In - Percentile distribution of number of bytes received over the network.

    ../../_images/instances-network-bytes-in.png

  • Top Network Bytes In - Top 5 instances based on the number of bytes received over the network.

    ../../_images/instances-top-network-bytes-in.png

  • Network Bytes In vs. 24h Change Percent - Aggregated number of bytes received from the network across all instances vs. the 24 hour change in number of bytes received.

    ../../_images/instances-network-bytes-in-vs-change.png

  • Network Bytes Out - Percentile distribution of number of bytes sent over the network.

    ../../_images/instances-network-bytes-out.png

  • Top Network Bytes Out - Top 5 instances based on the number of bytes sent over the network.

    ../../_images/instances-top-network-bytes-out.png

  • Network Bytes Out vs. 24h Change Percent - Aggregated number of bytes sent to the network across all instances vs. the 24 hour change in number of bytes sent.
