LogicMonitor’s agentless architecture is designed for large organizations adopting hybrid and multi-cloud environments to scale with ease. With an end-to-end view across important GCP services, IT Operations teams are equipped with real-time visibility into the health and performance of their entire distributed environments, whether fully deployed in GCP or just getting started.
Google Cloud Integration Summary
LM Cloud simplifies cloud monitoring and delivers comprehensive visibility into Google Cloud Platform (GCP) health and performance that is otherwise challenging to obtain.
This visibility is achieved with a cloud monitoring strategy that includes the components critical to measuring the overall health of cloud infrastructure:
- Resource Performance Monitoring
- GCP Availability Monitoring
- Coming Soon: ROI Monitoring
The strategy behind LM Cloud is unique because it goes beyond traditional resource level performance and availability data. LM Cloud provides visibility into all of the components that have the potential to impact the health of your GCP-backed infrastructure and services.
LM Cloud Benefits for GCP
- Make migrations to the cloud more manageable & cost-predictable with LM Cloud’s complete cloud monitoring strategy
- Get instant visibility into your cloud deployment with automated discovery of resources across regions, services, and accounts
- Eliminate gaps in monitoring with out of the box application and OS level metrics that complement data collected via GCP Stackdriver
- Visualize the health of your cloud deployment with automated dashboards and reports
- Avoid unavailability due to GCP-imposed limits or scheduled maintenance for critical services
- Be the first to know of GCP availability issues that may impact your services
Resource Performance Monitoring
GCP Stackdriver metrics: LM Cloud monitors GCP Stackdriver metrics for GCP services out-of-the-box, with no collector or agent needed. Once in the LogicMonitor platform, you’ll benefit from up to two-year data retention with no loss in granularity. Additionally, built-in alert thresholds based on best practices mean you’ll automatically start receiving alerts for non-performant resources.
LogicMonitor Collector metrics: Deploy a LogicMonitor Collector inside your GCP environment to take advantage of LogicMonitor’s thousands of pre-configured LogicModules. With a Collector, you’ll receive more granular performance metrics than those reported via Stackdriver, like operating system and application-level metrics – right out of the box.

GCP Availability Monitoring
GCP Accessibility: The availability and performance of applications running in GCP are dependent on the availability and performance of GCP itself. Availability issues reported by GCP automatically trigger alerts that can be routed to an individual, team or system via LogicMonitor’s built-in alerting and escalation functionality.
Visualize this availability monitoring data alongside resource performance to better understand when performance issues are a result of unavailable GCP services.
Service Limits Utilization: LM Cloud provides instant visibility into GCP Service Limit Utilization, and displays this data alongside resource performance data for your GCP projects. Take advantage of pre-configured thresholds to trigger alerts when you get close to GCP limits for Compute Engine. Proactively request increases in service limits based on monitored data to ensure sufficient scalability for burstable workloads.
Using LogicMonitor with Anthos enables you to comprehensively monitor your Kubernetes clusters (GKE or external) and the containerized applications running within them, alongside the rest of your hybrid IT infrastructure in a single pane of glass. Get started with LogicMonitor and Anthos here
Deploy through Google Cloud Platform Marketplace
Quickly deploy LogicMonitor through the GCP Marketplace. LogicMonitor usage is consolidated into your Google Cloud bill and applied to committed spend agreements. Click here to visit the GCP Marketplace.
Enhanced visibility on Compute Engine
LogicMonitor provides monitoring for Compute Engine via GCP StackDriver API. For more advanced out-of-the-box metrics, adding a local Collector automatically augments your understanding of the performance of what is running on each of your Compute Engine instances.
End-to-end GCP Cloud Networking
Monitor all of your GCP networking services in a single platform, including network utilization of your Cloud Router, VPN Gateway, and Cloud Interconnect, eliminating the need to switch between tools to gather important context and speeds troubleshooting. Monitor the usage and thresholding of your services and get the insights to grow your confidence.
Actionable Data At All Times
Whether it is file storage, messaging and queueing, or data storage, real-time visibility matters. LogicMonitor correlates and presents your data needs in GCP including Filestore, Cloud Storage, Redis, Pub/Sub, SQL, and BigTable, so users know how much, when, and where their data is going.
Prevent Kubernetes Engine Downtime
Gain insight into GKE to proactively prevent downtime and maximize application performance. With LogicMonitor’s Kubernetes Monitoring, you can get this insight into your GKE environment alongside the rest of your hybrid infrastructure. Learn more here
