What is Stackdriver and their Features
It is a monitoring service offered by Google, used to monitor performance data and availability of
application and virtual machines (VMs) running on GCP and AWS public cloud. It performs
monitoring, logging, and diagnostics to help users to optimize performance and availability of
the applications/services. The service pulls performance metrics and metadata from multiple
cloud accounts and allows users to view the virtual and graphical representation of that data
through the custom dashboard, charts, and reports; which makes it easy for users to monitor,
debug and fix issues. Below are some interesting features of the Stackdriver.
List of Features of Stackdriver:

components including Nginx, Cassandra, Apache web server etc. It also allows users to receive
customization alert when it finds any performance issues. Stackdriver ingests that data and
generates insights via the dashboard, the chart to monitor and see the graphical representation
of the resources used in Google Compute Engine VMs and Amazon EC2 instances.
