This lesson shows you how to monitor your operations on GCP. It starts with monitoring dashboards. You'll learn what they are and how to create, list, view, and filter them. You'll also see how to create a custom dashboard right in the GCP console.

The lesson then moves on to monitoring and alerting, where you'll learn about SLI-based alerting policies and third-party integrations. You'll also learn about SLO monitoring and alerting, along with integrating GCP monitoring with products like Grafana. We’ll wrap things up by touching on SIEM tools that are used to analyze audit and flow logs.

This lesson contains a handful of demos that give you a practical look at how to apply these monitoring techniques on the GCP platform. If you have any feedback relating to this lesson, feel free to reach out to us at support@cloudacademy.com.
