    • A proper way to autoscale MIGs using memory usage

      The autoscaler for a Managed Instance group does not allow for a memory usage based autoscaling policy from Stackdriver metrics which actually meets real world needs. I have raised in the Google Groups community, so just linking to that instead of retyping - https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/gce-discussion/y8vWBaJFflA

      • Enable GCLB gzip compression

        Right now, GCLB supports gzip compression only if the backend request comes already compressed. It would be great if GCLB could compress non-compressed backend responses too

          • Allow configurable time for shutdown script

            According to https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/shutdownscript#time_period the shutdown script has a limited time period to run, and running it on a best effort basis. This causes issues when we want to ensure that a shutdown script runs, and completes its cleanup task. An example would be flushing in-memory cached data to a backend store, failing which would lead to a corrupted datastore. We have actually faced this in production. If there are other options available please let me know.

            Also, changing the behaviour of the software (flush more often) is not possible in our case.

            • Web SFTP/File Browser for VMs

              We are running some jobs on our machines that generate a number of CSV output files. Best practice is to automate fetching of these files, however on occasion it would be nice to have a quick and dirty approach where we could browse the file system of our machine and download the needed files through the web browser, similar to your great web based SSH client.

                • Add domain registration management to google cloud

                  It would be great if domains.google were a core product of Google Cloud Platform.
                  That way we could administer everything in the same place (and only have one bill), plus everything else that would be simpler administration-wise.

                  And in any case, make sure domain registration is available in all markets, which it currently isn't under google.domains.

                    • Signed URLs for CDN which include expiration?

                      Can we have this feature where the same content is shown to multiple users based on whether they have subscription or not. We want to include expiration (5-10 mins) and the link then becomes unusable and cannot be shared with others. Similar functionality is available at Similar to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/private-content-signed-urls.html

                      • Add a "notARobot" field to Google Plus OAuth tokens for users who have paid money for Google products

                        Bot accounts are a big problem for apps and social media sites. One effective means of combating these is to subject users to captchas, which is not ideal for user experience, and it is sufficiently cumbersome that it is almost never used for frequent actions such as voting. Another method is to use email verification, but this is not terribly effective as the cost of creating an email account for a bot are very low. To be effective, bot detection mechanisms need to be high-cost to circumvent. Fortunately, many people with gmail accounts also have spent money on Google products…

                              Would be nice to have a few nice managed services like Memecache, Redis (Elasticache like) and even an NFS managed service (this would be really nice).

                              • hook for host maintenance handling for GCE instances

                                On host maintenance, GCE instances can be told to either migrate or terminate. Not all configurations support migration (e.g. instances with GPU).

                                How about adding a hook for users to implement their own migration in the event of planned maintenance? The hook could provide a death time by which the migration must have been performed, or the instance will be terminated (and possible restarted, per that orthogonal setting).

                                (It should also be possible for users to implicitly (as in, it is done by default for new instances) or explicitly schedule new instances on hosts which have already been maintained, in…

                                    Hi,

                                    This is available via gcloud and the REST API, but due to some deployment schedule conflicts, has not been rolled out yet in the cloud console (aka web) UI yet. It’s coming very soon, sorry for the inconvenience. In the meantime, if you need to create a template with them, you could try via gcloud.

                                  • More GPU families and Graphics compatibility

                                    more GPU cards, from Nvidia Volta to Nvidia Grid, and more compatibility for gaming and render machines

                                    • Billing Reporting with reference to bill

                                      GCP Billing export shows up all costs and credits that will be billed, or were already billed for a specific billing account.

                                      It would be nice, if I could see which costs were already payed / or shown on a monthly bill, and which will show up on the next bill.

                                      Right now I can't tell exactly what amount will show up on my monthly bill, by evaluating the billing export data.

                                      Could there be a reference to a bill, or at least a flag "was_billed" or something else in the billing export data?

                                      I know, an additional column may…

                                      • Publish instructions about how to set up Chrome Remote Desktop on a GCE Linux VM

                                        GCE and Chrome remote Desktop are two Google products but they is no mention in either's documentation on how to implement CRD on a GCE Linux VM.

                                        • Add RAM usage to Instance View (we already have CPU usage)

                                          It's nice that we can see CPU usage over time. But RAM is not available as an option to chart. Oddly, we have network packets. RAM is far more important for stability and health of the system.
