    Update: the UI for this feature is currently under development, and should be released in the near future. Our deployment process makes an exact prediction difficult, but I wanted to provide an update on this since it has been a while.

  12. ability to limit spend per project by day/week/month

    Use Case:

    Due to unplanned load (slashdot effect etc, zero-day security vulnerability) a GCloud user may exceed the usage they expected, and be hit with an unexpectedly high bill. Other providers enable features such as rate limiting, reducing traffic bandwidth, or even disabling (turning off) the entire service.

    Both companies and self-employed developers don’t like surprises. Students and other hobbyists may simply not be able to afford it. It should be possible to limit max spend for an account somehow, and optionally provide some limited guidance in the GCloud UI on what to do (turn it all off, or just…

  14. Support for MTU > 1460 bytes

    If UDP packet's exceed the size of 1460 bytes, they seem to get fragmented by the network and cannot be reassembled accordingly on GCE instance.

    Is it planned to increase the MTU or is there a known workaround how reassembly can be done accordingly?

  17. Rename Static IP Addresses

    Could we have the ability to rename static IP addresses?

    For example, you may have reserved a static ip address to use as your production ip for your web server, and names it "Production Web IP". Then later on the use of that server may change, and it is no longer used as your production web server, but you need to keep the same IP address (maybe it is registered with some external service as an allowed origin for some service that you will still be using.

    In this case you will end up with a Static IP Address called…

  20. Need to route from forwarding rule port to another port for instances in target pool

    Not sure if this is already supported, but my scenario is that I'd like my load balancer to listen for TCP traffic on port 80 and forward traffic to instances in the relevant target pool listening on port 8080.

    I tried to find documentation support the above use case to no avail.
