  2. Can't find options to set up GPU.

    I came here to try out Compute Engine with GPUs. Blog Posts told me that this is possible. I thought I upgraded to a paid account and added my credit card. However I can't find the GPUs listed under "quota".

    I suspect that your philosophy is that serious users will be able to navigate this byzantine system, but it is frustrating not to be able to get started; in fact that prevents me from BECOMING a serious user.

    Hmm, how can you tell if your account is “upgraded” so that you should be able to see the “Google Compute Engine”…

    Sorry to hear about your experience, we’ll look into making the experience easier to use. In the meantime however, please visit the gce-discussion Google Group if you need some tips in the right direction to get started.

  3. gcloud commands auto copy to clipboard

    So in most parts of the gcp console when it click show gcloud command it auto selects the whole line and copies it to your clipboard. For example the GKE creation screen.

    Now logging into a GCE vm via gcloud ssh, it does not do it here, you have to manually select the whole line and copy the text.

    This is inconstant ux design and should be fixed, thats all.

    I request that GCP adds the same behaviour to ssh logins.

  7. Add ability to reduce boot disk size

    It would be nice to be able to reduce boot disk size. Currently there is easy way to increase disk size, but not to reduce.

  8. Make graphs anchoreable at a specific time.

    The graphs are nice but there is no obvious way to zoom onto 1 hour 3 days ago for example. This also means that if I give the link to a console to someone and he opens it a few hours later, he won't see what I meant.

    Thanks, that’s an interesting suggestion. In the meantime, if you have a lot of needs around monitoring and graphing, you might want to check out Stackdriver, which has a richer set of functionality than the simple graphs on our console (though I’m not sure if it allows you to anchor a graph).

  9. Payment in advance (pre-paid) via local Indonesia bank account, e.g. BCA. BNI, Mandiri

    Payment in advance (pre-paid) via local Indonesia bank account, e.g. BCA. BNI, Mandiri. User GCP can pay in advance via local bank accounts easily. Not only use credit card. Or use Indonesia local payment processor like Doku.
    User can top up balance in GCP via local bank account.

  11. Progress tracking feature in documentation

    The documentation section is pretty useful, but vast. It would be good to have progress tracking feature in the Documentation section, so users could track and have a record of the sections covered and the ones they need to cover.

  12. Processor usage chart on micro and small instances.

    Processor usage chart on micro and small instances is unclear. It should be clear if 100% on the graph indicates the available power for the shared instance or the entire processor.

  13. cloud sql access from compute enqine

    Hi, maybe I'm missing something but it seems insanely difficult to connect to Cloud SQL postgres instance from compute engine.
    I setup a simple PHP script attempting to connect but getting Error 500 response. The same script on my network is working perfectly. I put a firewall exception in Compute Engine to allow the connection, and Cloud SQL would not allow me to add Compute Engine's IP as its from a private network.
    I cannot really run a LAMP stack as the data needs are very high. Is there any way to enable access? I know this should be possible…

  14. Ability to set tag in instance group (and not just template)

    This will be very helpful in using the same template for multiple environments, i.e. dev/staging/prod but tagging each instance with a different tag, for example web-app-dev/web-app-stg/web-app-prod

    It is also possible to use these tags for deployments and configuration management tasks

  15. Larger - More Persistent Disks per Intance

    Our offering could use more than 64TB of persistent storage per instance. In our case either allowing a larger disk size or multiple 64TB disks would be an improvement. For now, the most I could see us needing would be around 500TB but of course someday that will sound tiny :)

  18. --boot-disk-size parameter check is wrong

    "gcloud compute instance-templates create" fails when '--boot-disk-size' is less than 10 while creation of the template using web interface succeeds. Steps to reproduce:
    1) create custom image that requires a boot disk of 1GB.
    2) Using web interface start to create an instance template using that image not changing the size of the requested boot image.
    3) Obtain the CLI command to create the image from the web interface.
    4) try to execute it.

    creating a template using web interface or issuing the same command with --boot-disk-size option omitted successfully creates an instance template with boot disk size equal to…

  20. Chrome Remote Desktop to Linux instance on GCE?

    Hi,

    I have tried using VNC to connect to my GCE instances but I would much rather use Chrome Remote Desktop because it is secure and the resolution scales to the display that I am using to view it.

    I tried installing it on Ubuntu Instances but couldn't get past the step where Chrome asks for the root password to enable remote connections.

    Is this something you expect to work?

    Dan

    Hi, thanks for your question. Unfortunately we aren’t staffed on this forum to answer interactive support questions. Please visit our discussion forum 1 or other sites like StackOverflow to get interactive help.

    I’m marking this as under review rather than declined, such that if there is a specific request that comes out of this, you can maybe comment here and turn this into an item to track that.
