Description

Logging is very important today given the volume and variety of data we deal with across different customer use cases. This course will enable you to take a more proactive approach towards identifying faults and crashes in your applications through the effective use of Google Cloud Logging. As a result, you will learn how to delegate the operational overhead to GCP through automated logging tools, resulting in a more productive operational pipeline for your team and organization. 

Learning Objectives

Through this course, you will equip yourself with the required skills for streaming log data to Google Cloud Logging service and use metrics to understand your system's behavior. The course will start with an introduction to the Cloud Logging Service and then demonstrate how to stream logs using Cloud Logging Agent and the Python client library.

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this course, you should already have an understanding of application logging.

Intended Audience

This course is suited for anyone interested in logging using Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Cloud Logging.

Transcript

Many Google Cloud platform services, like Google Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Run et cetera, are well integrated with the Google Cloud Logging Service. This means they can send log data with few clicks in the UI, or by simply clicking on the logging checkbox, during the resource creation. Besides that, Google Cloud Logging exposes its endpoint to ingest logs from custom applications. There are two simple ways to send log data to Google Cloud Logging. Cloud Logging Agent and Cloud Logging API. In the coming lectures, we will learn about both techniques.
