How can we improve Stackdriver?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Ability to send Error Notifications to Slack or Custom Email Address

    Currently, alerts can only be sent to the email of someone's personal account. But we would prefer not to create cloud accounts for all developers and operators. Instead, we'd like to send errors caught by stackdriver to a slack room or to a group email account (just as is done for errors caught by the normal stackdriver utility).

    The documents mention setting up a "forward" from your gmail account, but this is hacky and doesnt work for users that don't have access to a gsuite address

  4. keep metric details for deleted instances

    Currently all details of deleted instances are gone. The instance name would be usefull, as well as all the labels and states.

  5. export all logs for execution id

    When I export to CSV or JSON, only the logs that have been loaded in the scroll view are exported. If I am looking at a particular execution of a function (Execution ID), I would like to be able to export all of the logs for that execution. I currently have to export, scroll & load new logs, export again, scroll & load new logs again...(and so on)... and then look at all of the exports in separate files or try to splice them together where one ended and the next began.

  6. Replace fluentd with something less resource hungry

    Fluentd is using 150MB of RAM on my smallish Kubernetes 1.11.6 cluster with hardly any log volume..

    FluentBit may be a better option.

  7. Support POST data in Stackdriver uptime checks

    Uptime checks should support non-GET HTTP methods too, including POST with data.

  8. Add "Notice" as a drop down option to the severity filter in the logs viewer UI

    Right now I can view my Stackdriver logs via the UI and filter on "severity" easily via the drop down menu option.

    Sadly, this dropdown is missing the severity types of "Notice", "Alert" and "Emergency".

    See here: https://twitter.com/magnetikonline/status/1092948388285272064

    And the valid/allowed enumerations here: https://cloud.google.com/logging/docs/reference/v2/rest/v2/LogEntry#LogSeverity

  10. Add an ability to comment lines on the "advanced logs filter" text area

    Currently, advanced logs filter area does not allow commenting filter lines to toggle between narrower and broader search.

    Something like:
    # logName="projects/p/logs/hadoop-hdfs-namenode"

    would be very helpful

  11. 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.

  12. Delete log entries using Logs Viewer

    I'd like to delete log entries using the Logs Viewer. Either selectively or a complete wipe. It looks like there are other ways to delete them, but they seem to require using other software. Why not offer it in Logs Viewer?

  13. Support Pub/Sub notifications on new Error report

    Today only e-mail notification or mobile app are supported.

    We want to send to Slack and possibly do other fancy logic with CI...

    We want to have Pub/Sub support to Cloud Function

  14. 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.

  15. Make Stackdriver profiler profiles accessible via an API

    Currently there is a download button but no way to access the report / zipped profiles programmatically. We want to integrate the profiling results into our monitoring/alerting and want to automate this.

  16. Change color for logs

    While the logs keep loading and you are looking at some log, you might lose the track of which ones you already looked.
    It would be good if the logs which were clicked could change color to show that they have been already visited.
    Also if you like to come back to some log, there should be an option to mark the particular log important or change the color to your preference so you can easily come back rather than loading the entire log for that day again.

  17. Ability to filter GKE Namespaces

    I run several namespaces on my GKE clusters that generate errors that I do not care about, and several that I do.

    I'd like to be able to only be notified when errors are generated by specific GKE namespaces.

  19. 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.
