Google Cloud Monitoring Integration Guide

Google Cloud Platform is a cloud hosting solution provided by Google. The cloud computing solutions provided on the platform run on the same infrastructure that Google uses internally for its systems. It is a scalable infrastructure with high reliability and performance.

The Google Cloud Operations service (formerly known as Stackdriver) can be used to monitor both Google Cloud and AWS resources. Metric checks can be set up to detect overloads and outages before they happen, while uptime checks can be set up to ensure that your infrastructure components are running. TaskCall integrates with Google Cloud to make alerts raised by these checks more visible. As soon as the alerts are raised, TaskCall uses its powerful notification and incident response system to get the correct on-call responders to address the incidents right away and reduce system downtime.

  • The integration is between a TaskCall service and Google Cloud.
  • Incidents will automatically resolve in TaskCall when metrics fall back within the normal threshold.
  • This integration only receives alerts in TaskCall from Google Cloud.
