Monitoring Google Compute Engine with New Relic Infrastructure

Google Compute Engine is the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) component of Google Cloud Platform and provides on-demand cloud infrastructure for general purpose applications with a variety of server sizes, regions, and operating systems. It lets you launch virtual machines on demand, and also lets you reserve instances with automated per-second pricing.

What you can monitor with our Google Compute Engine integration

Network traffic

Incoming and outcoming network traffic going through your virtual machines in bytes.


Disk I/O

The amount of bytes written and read from the disk in a period of time.




CPU usage

The percentage of your CPU resources being used.

You need to know what’s happening in your Google Compute Engine infrastructure

By enabling the integration together with the installed agent you will have a complete view of your Google Compute Engine state and a detailed inventory with a wealth of information about your setup.

Pre-built Google Compute Engine dashboards

See all your important metrics, filter to a specific host, and correlate performance with other metrics.

Default GCP Compute Engine dashboard

Track all Google Compute Engine configuration changes

Understand configuration differences across your stack and quantify how configuration changes impact performance.



General Inventory Example

Google Compute Engine performance alerts

Get alerts when your Google Compute Engine performance is degrading. You can manually set an alert on any of the metrics captured—for example, when the number of requests per second drops to zero.
