Overview

The Cloud Monitoring output will stream custom Google Cloud metrics to a Cloud project.


Review Parameters

Review the following parameters that you can configure in the Edge Delta App:

YAML

Description

name

Enter a descriptive name for the output or integration.

For outputs, this name will be used to map this destination to a workflow.

This parameter is required. 

Review the following parameter: 

name: my-cloudmonitoring

integration_name

This parameter only appears when you create an individual output.

This parameter refers to the organization-level integration created in the Integrations page. If you enter this name, then the rest of the fields will be automatically populated.

If you need to add multiple instances of the same integration into the config, then you can add a custom name to each instance via the name field. In this situation, the name should be used to refer to the specific instance of the destination in the workflows.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following parameter: 

integration_name: orgs-gcp-cm

type

Enter cloudmonitoring.

This parameter is required. 

Review the following parameter: 

type: cloudmonitoring

project_id

Enter the identifier of the GCP project associated with this resource.

This parameter is required. 

Review the following parameter: 

project_id: edgedelta

key

Enter a key for the agent to use for authentication.

You must enter a key or key path.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following parameter: 

key: '{{ Env "CLOUDMONITORING_KEY" }}'

key_path

Enter a path for the agent to use for authentication.

You must enter a key or key path.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following parameter: 

key_path: "gcp_cm_key_path"

features

This parameter defines which data types to stream to the destination. 

To learn more, review the Review Feature Types section in Stream Outputs and Integrations Overview.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following parameter: 

features: metric
buffer_ttl

Enter a length of time to retry failed streaming data.

After this length of time is reached, the failed streaming data will no longer be tried.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following example: 

buffer_ttl: 2h
buffer_path

Enter a folder path to temporarily store failed streaming data.

The failed streaming data will be retried until the data reaches its destinations or until the Buffer TTL value is reached.

If you enter a path that does not exist, then the agent will create directories, as needed.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following example: 

buffer_path: /var/log/edgedelta/pushbuffer/
buffer_max_bytesize

Enter the maximum size of failed streaming data that you want to retry.

If the failed streaming data is larger than this size, then the failed streaming data will not be retried.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following example: 

buffer_max_bytesize: 100MB

Review Sample Configuration

The following sample configuration displays an output without the name of the organization-level integration:

    - name: my-cloudmonitoring
      type: cloudmonitoring
      project_id: edgedelta
      key: '{{ Env "CLOUDMONITORING_KEY" }}'
      features: metric
