Keeping track of all network and application-related activity, identifying bottlenecks, and tracing errors is a major undertaking. Stackdriver, Google Cloud's cross-platform monitoring and logging service, is designed to integrate all this functionality into a single, accessible interface. In this hands-on lab, you’ll walk through the steps necessary to monitor a Compute Engine VM instance for CPU usage and network traffic, including methods for visualizing the information.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
