  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.

          • 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.

              • Export Stackdriver logs to CSV or to a bucket

                Should be able to export Stackdriver logs to a CSV or a storage bucket.

                  • Monitoring App

                    It would be nice to see the dashboards from a mobile App. Cloud Console App shows some graphs but they are not the same as StackDriver's Dashboards.

                    • Add Stackdriver events to logging

                      Right now I don't see a way to view Stackdriver events (such as past incidents) along side logs.
                      It would be very useful to be able to have Stackdriver events as logs, so that I could do metrics on them, dashboard them, etc.

                      • Support for Dart

                        In building an app with Flutter, GCP, and Firebase, it would be nice if Stackdriver Error Reporting was able to parse stack traces from Dart...could be an acceptable alternative to Crashlytics, which is not yet supported.

                        • User-defined metrics view - Show more than 10 rows / save preference

                          Currently when editing and creating user-defined metrics, upon returning to the previous page with the table that lists the custom metrics, the view resets to only 10 rows. This means every time I have to select show "XX Rows per page" to continue where I left off. Please create a better view for this or at least save the preference for how many rows to show. Thanks!

                          • Ability to hide top panel with log name, "create metric", "create export" and filters to see more lines on screen

                            Currently the top static panel, where og name, "create metric", "create export" and filters are located, consumes too much screen space, and there is no way to hide it, like it is done with left sidebar. Please, add an ability to do this, because it is very important to see more log lines on the screen, than constantly see the filters, etc.

                            • 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.

                                  • Please add a search bar for the log selector

                                    We have over 150+ items in the log selector. It's extremely difficult to scroll down that list to find what you want.

                                      • 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.

                                          As a user, I want to see the exact lines when the search query is, not the request. I toggle would do.
