Chapter 7: Managing and Monitoring Network Operations

When cloud infrastructures have been deployed, it is critical for network and security operation teams to have a central point of supervision where they can maintain systems and traffic under management control. For this scope, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offers the operations suite (formerly Stackdriver), which provides a suite of monitoring and troubleshooting services that will help operation teams to have everything under control. It includes the following services:

  • Cloud Logging: This is a fully managed service that centralizes the log management of your cloud infrastructure.
  • Cloud Monitoring: This is a fully managed service that centralizes metrics collection and provides performance and health visibility of your cloud infrastructure.
  • Cloud Trace: This is a fully managed service to collect application latency data and provides near-real-time application performance information.
  • Cloud Profiler: This is a...
