The Google Cloud Operations suite (formerly Stackdriver) includes a wide variety of tools to help you monitor and debug your GCP-hosted applications. This course will give you hands-on demonstrations of how to use the Monitoring, Logging, Error Reporting, Trace, and Profiler components of the Cloud Operations suite. You can follow along with your own GCP account to try these examples yourself.

Welcome to this “Introduction to Google Cloud Operations Suite”. I’m Guy Hummel, and I’ll be showing you how to monitor your GCP systems.
To get the most from this course, you should know the fundamentals of Google Cloud Platform, such as how to create virtual machine instances and use App Engine. If you need a refresher, then you can take our Overview of Google Cloud Platform course.
You should also have experience with performing operations tasks, especially working with Linux. It would also be helpful to have some programming experience, although just knowing the basics of a typical programming language should be enough.
We’ll be going through the components of the Cloud Operations suite to monitor, log, report errors on, trace, and profile your applications.
Now, if you’re ready to learn how to monitor your Google Cloud infrastructure, then let’s get started.
Guy launched his first training website in 1995 and he's been helping people learn IT technologies ever since. He has been a sysadmin, instructor, sales engineer, IT manager, and entrepreneur. In his most recent venture, he founded and led a cloud-based training infrastructure company that provided virtual labs for some of the largest software vendors in the world. Guy’s passion is making complex technology easy to understand. His activities outside of work have included riding an elephant and skydiving (although not at the same time).
