Google Cloud Monitoring metrics 🔗

After connecting to GCP, metrics from Google Cloud Monitoring sync with Infrastructure Monitoring.

Metrics from Google Cloud Monitoring (formerly Stackdriver) contain dimensions that correspond to the Labels described in the Google Cloud metrics reference and the Monitored Resource Types reference. Use the monitored_resource dimension to determine which metric corresponds to a particular resource.

Although you can configure Cloud Monitoring to monitor AWS metrics, the GCP integration with Splunk Observability Cloud does not ingest them by default. You can enter additional GCP service domains while configuring your integration. Such a configuration does not connect your Splunk Observability Cloud instance to AWS.
