  1. Customized shortcuts on Dashboard

    If I need to open my SSH of any instance I need 3 to 4 hops to reach there. We need to have option to create shortcuts( like right click> place this object on Dash board) for objects which can be placed on Dashboard. This will enable quick access to any instance or particular task

  2. Is it possible that there's a log at /var/log named google.log in which may be listed private keys, with permission to be read for anyone?

    It would be a serious security problem, sumed to sudo access without password and using port 22 for ssh

  4. deployment manager debug output

    When deploying templates via deployment manager, it would be helpful to be able to set a debug flag, which would provide more verbose details about what steps the deployment manager is going through to accomplish the creation of all relevant resources.

  5. Steal Time in linux instances

    Hello, I would like to know how to enable the "steal time" function so that linux instances (eg Centos 7.0) inform this data.

  6. More local SSDs space for larger isntances

    Local SSD scratch space is independent of the instance type and each instance can only support a maximum of 4 SSDs each with 375 GB. This is a barrier for running big data workloads which require a high amount of local storage capacity per node. Can you please increase the local SSD scratch space for larger instances (VMs with 8 / 16 / 32 CPUs)?

  7. You should tell us what is the pricing for disk image.

    When I am creating the disk image, I am telled I would be priced, when I follow the link to this doc, it is hard to find the section I want, and even no message for how the disk image is priced.

    https://cloud.google.com/compute/pricing?hl=enGB&ga=2.134124622.-1554852137.1550303826&gac=1.57327960.1550305602.CjwKCAiAhpjBRAxEiwAXbniXQOT-nejMOub1Lb2qh1KAgqRM9uvQflsS221sK0cq63GLz9QfwtIaxoCRgAQAvD_BwE

  10. Support adding container options and disable stackdriver logging when deploy container in VM

    There is no way to add docker options when deployed a container image to VM. It is very useful when we want to limit the log size ($ docker run -it --log-opt max-size=10m --log-opt max-file=3 alpine ash). Also, I hope that there can be an option to disable stackdriver logging in COS.

    Thanks for your feedback. You might find it interesting to note that some competitors offer a resource identifier with as many as SEVENTEEN characters… which used to be merely eight.

    We’d love to understand more about what limits you are hitting with 30 chars, can you share more via comments about your use case?

    Thanks

  13. restart button

    could you please add a (re)start button instead of a start button? If the server is already running it will restart and if it is offline it starts the server

  17. offer a supported C++ client API

    We are a financial company test-driving GCE. C++ is still widely used within the industry but there is no supported SDK here (AWS has one).

  18. 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.

  20. Provide a live hook for user to get operation events...

    If GCP can provide a live hook for user to got operation event like live migrate or on host error..., better to integrate to GCP mobile app, RESTful API or IFTTT!

    Thanks, this is a good suggestion and definitely something we have in mind. We’d like to make it so that events affecting the VM can be published via something like pub/sub, and then you could imagine where perhaps Google Cloud Functions would be a good way to respond and handle them.
