Docker 1.12 is out with swarm - Amazon already has swarm support (beta) we need this in Compute Engine / Container Engine also. Kubernetes is to complicated and to heavy for smaller projects.13 votes
Thanks for your suggestion, we will consider your request and share with the GKE team as well.
When you click 'Edit' on the Compute Engine VM Instances page you must scroll to the bottom to save your changes. I think instead of just greying out the 'Edit' button it should turn into a 'Save' button.
We are lazy and don't want to scroll to the bottom. Sounds easy enough right?12 votes
Thanks, we will look into this.
I try to config a win2012 server but I only can connect to remote desktop, the google remote desktop not works..
that is a problem because i only can connect when all works fine in windows.
I better if I have a vnc connection directly in the website, that helps to debug, fix problems with remote desktop, and gift console access12 votes
we’ll look into VNC. If you are interested in console access, you have the option of configuring WinRM support on your instance.
Add the option to deploy a ready HipChat server. Just like Amazon Web Services (AWS).12 votes
Thanks, we’ll investigate. We’d love to have Atlassian products in our Cloud Launcher!
Connections to the VM with OpenSSH only succeed if the correct username is given. Otherwise it returns "Permission denied (publickey)".
Some external tools, e.g. Ansible, use the SSH config file resp. the SSH agent.
Adding the "User" to each "Host" entry would be help here. Then it's also not required to add it somewhere in the tool config (if possible at all) and therefore these configs can easier be shared without user state in it.11 votes
Thanks, we’ll take a look.
When transferring k8s cluster to another gcp project due to billing issues, we had to release and reserve the new static ip addresses. But the old ones we had whitelisted on several endpoints, updating which takes quite a while. It would be great if we could just transfer those ip addresses to another gcp project we own.10 votes
Thanks, we’ve shared this suggestion with the feature team so they may consider it for their backlog.
My wish list is that you can also secure your instance's egress traffic by having the capability to have rules for specific target and ports.
If I want to protect my instance to disable internet access, I will configure (egress) to block port 80 on any target. Then I can also filter ports & IP address or IP Block for the egress traffic.10 votes
Thanks, we’re considering this in the future.
A method to forward e-mails coming to administrative users (like root) of a VM instance to project users
Since all outbound TCP connections to ports 25, 465, and 587 from a GCE instance are not allowed, there should be an easy method to forward e-mails coming to administrative users of a VM instance (like root, ubuntu, etc. in a Linux instance) to project users. Preventing sending out e-mails from an instance also makes life difficult for many other tools (monitoring etc.) that rely on e-mail communication to send alerts.10 votes
Thanks for the suggestion, we’re currently looking into enhancements in this area. We’ll update this item as information becomes available.
I'd like to spin up a larger-than-micro instance for a cloud shell (micro appears to be too small to run the HBase shell). Would save me the trouble of installing maven, sdks, etc when I provision the instance.10 votes
Hi, thanks for the idea. Cloud Shell is meant to be a fast and easy way to quickly interact with a VM shell, and the free nature is connected to the fact that it’s a small VM you’re getting. For more elaborate work, you may want to consider configuring an Image in GCE just the way you want it, and then spinning up instances of that Image as necessary. With our 10-minute minimum billing duration for a VM, it would likely still be quite affordable.
The instance group viewing page in the Google Cloud console should show the health check of the VMs. At the moment, there's no way to view the health status of VMs in an instance group from the console.
It should show the health status on this page:10 votes
There is no way to install additional applications for a container-vm-image. So please provide docker-compose.10 votes
Thanks, we’ll share your idea with the team.
Use the same names for regions on the pricing page (https://cloud.google.com/compute/pricing) as you do when looking at instances.
Display the actual hourly pricing, not including discounts when you select or edit a product.9 votes
Thanks for your suggestion, we’ll look into this.
Would be helpful to allow me to give you an interval and you tell me how much network bandwidth is consumed during that time interval for a vm. My bill is charged by GB, not B/sec.9 votes
Some VMs go up with "external-nat", others with "External NAT", making scripting a living hell and causing problems with VM cicling in a single static IP.9 votes
This would be similar to the CPU utilization graphs that are associated with each vm instance.9 votes
Thanks, we’ll consider this in the future. Because our GPUs are a “pass through” operational mode, it’s not clear that GCE has access to the metrics that would be necessary to implement this.
i have a special need with an instance running a server and it cant have any downtime, previously i had to increase its disk size for a eventuality but now isnt necesary that space.
I think that maybe its posible add this feature with a workload using a shrink disk and add the feature of delete the useless volume generated, or something that make possible small its size, like we can grow it in the console actually9 votes
Thanks for the request. We currently don’t support shrinking disk volumes currently, but it’s something we’re considering for the future.
I want to use an API URL with basic HTTP authentication in Health Check.
The API return on / off string.8 votes
Thanks for the suggestion.
Display total VM count in VM Instance screen at the top to know the number of VM's this make it easy if we have more VMs7 votes
Thanks, that’s a good idea!
After setting a firewall policy and setting it into a target label I am back at the instance VM to add the target label but misplaced it. I suggest for auto-complete thetag name to avoid missspelling. Moreover, if you could assign the tag to instnaces from the netwrok screen rather than jumping between the two it would also save time.7 votes
Thanks, we’ll see if we can improve this experience.
In Google Cloud Console
In Create an instance template and Create an instance (addResourceForm)
in Automation section
add "Shutdown script (Optional)" text area like "Startup script (Optional)"7 votes
Thanks for the suggestion!
