  1. Suppress Alerts During Maintenance Window

    It would be great if we could define daily/weekly/monthly maintenance windows and then suppress alerts during the maintenance window. This would save us receiving false positive alerts during scheduled downtime.

    • Add a Compute Instance Memory Metric

      It would be great if Stackdriver had a compute instance metric which allowed you to track memory usage over time. This would allow users to evaluate whether they are over or under-provisioning memory.

      • Jump to time should accept plain text dates

        I should be able to copy the datetime from the logs and paste it to "Jump to time" dialog as is. E.g. "2018-07-02 16:51:24.000 EEST
        07-02 13:51:24". Having to manually enter the date/time and timezone in different fields is very tedious and time consuming

            • Ability to see previous/next N lines for the current log line

              User should be able to see N lines before and after any line in the logs. Splunk allows to see "raw logs" for any log line, which is helpful when the log contains more than the single line and when debugging complex sequences of events.

              • Allow exports to BiqQuery tables in different GCP projects

                I have no permissions to export the logs to BiqQuery for the current project, so it would be great to be able to export to Bigquery in the project where I have the permissions to write.

                  • Cloud Monitoring (Stack Driver) Failsafe scripts

                    There are various errors/warnings which could happen on a machine, and resolutions for few of them is as easy as restarting the process. There could be a failsafe script that one can attach to a specific failure error.

                    • Public API for account association

                      As part of automated project creation, it would be helpful to expose an API endpoint to add accounts to an existing Stackdriver account

                      • Python library for Stackdriver Profiler

                        The product pages states that it is planned, is there somewhere I can check the status of this?

                        • Support composite metrics

                          It would be helpful to be able to build (for the purposes of graphing and alerting) derived metrics consisting of one or more metrics modified via one or more mathematical functions.

                          e.g. Given the two existing metrics: "memory used" and "total memory". One should be able to create a composite metric of "memory utilization percent" by dividing memory used by memory total and multiplying by 100.

                            This is available via alpha APIs today. We’re working on getting the APIs to beta and supporting this via the UI as well.

                          • Support labels for Error Reporting

                            It would be great if error reporting also supported Labels, like the logging client does. This would allow us to classify errors, and attach metadata without polluting the main error message and destroying cardinality.
