  1. Inconsistent UID Username Mapping When Using SHH Metadata

    Hi, Google Cloud provides SSH metadata to enable ssh login.
    However, when I use project-wide metadata for ssh login, I found that different machines have different username <-> uid/gid mapping.

    For example, in machine 1, user A has uid 1003, user B has uid 1004, while in machine 2, user A's uid is 1004 and user B's uid is 1003.

    This causes trouble when all these machines are connected via a sharerd network file system in large scale computation tasks!

    Waiting for your response!
    Best Regards

  3. Allow Standard Restrictions in Public Key SSH File Metadata

    Please allow us to put standard restrictions in the authorized_keys files of our instances via the metadata SSH Keys editor found here:
    https://console.cloud.google.com/compute/metadata/sshKeys

    Currently your input restrictions do not allow us to submit the keys with restrictions, but it would be nice to be able to have standard restrictions inserted if desired such as these:
    from="1.2.3.4/16" ssh-rsa ..
    from="1.2.3.4",no-agent-forwarding,no-port-forwarding,no-X11-forwarding ssh-rsa ..
    command="/usr/local/bin/my-prog" ssh-rsa ..

    Please consider this. Thank you.

  6. Schedule Hardware Upgrades

    Changing RAM/Core count requires to shutdown the machine, editing it and starting it again.

    It would be nice if one could schedule a hardware upgrade so that all of this happens automatically at a chosen time and date. This would result in minimal downtime for non-redundant system.

  7. "no resource" extremely poor experience.

    Why would people to bother with compute if it randomly fails.

    How would anyone use this in a professional context.

    Improve user experience/make this viable.

  9. Make it simple to login for a first time user. I have given up

    Haven't got time to take a weeks course to find out how to log in to one of your VMs
    Much to complicated to get started on this.

  10. port mirroring

    Need port mirroring functionality for real time network application debugging. We can make use of tcpdump functionality within the instance, but incase of appliances with limited user option, there must be support from cloud infra for port mirroring inside private VPC network.

  12. Increase the grace period for Preemptible VMs

    When using preemptible instances on GKE, 30 second grace period is simply not enough for the workloads to shut down gracefully and often causes service disruptions so I'd love to see this period raised to at least 2 minutes which is a standard on AWS. I believe that would give the machine enough time to gracefully shut down.

  14. Provide alert for upcoming deprecation of VM images

    We've had numerous production outages caused by deprecations of VM images in Compute Engine. Is there any way to get alerted about upcoming deprecations?

  16. Make images available for Debian Buster

    Debian Buster has been officially released but there's no images available for Compute Engine, nor any GCE-specific release notes or documentation on upgrading existing Stretch images. Fix both of those!

  19. Be able to move GKE clusters across Zones

    Currently I'm running into this:


    Try a different location, or try again later: Google Compute Engine does not have enough resources available to fulfill request: us-west1-a.

    While it's simple to just relocate to us-west2-b, or c, It's not possible to move the master node of my GKE cluster into us-west1-b (thus rendering me unable to upgrade it). I could, as a workaround, add additional zones to my cluster to spin up new nodes but that would 2x or even 3x my costs.

    Given that alternatives to GKE, such as kops, support this out of the box it's a little disappointing…
