  1. Log Viewer : more readable logs

    I see logs viewer is transforming our logs, some characters like " and carry returns are shown as \" and \n, so, that makes the logs harder to read, so, for legacy applications some rework is required to find a way to make the logs readable when going to log viewer.
    So, I think it is very important to find a way to make the logs showable as they are generated on the source.

    example, what I expected to be shown as

    {
    "code": "201",
    "transactionTimestamp": 1571435347966,
    "data": {
    "prop1": {
    "prop2": {
    "booleanProp": false
    }
    }
    }
    }

    it…

  3. Allow deobfuscation in Stackdriver Profiler

    Our Java application is obfuscated by proguard by default, we'd like to use Stackdriver profiler but there is currently no option to use e.g. proguard maps to deobfuscate the profile samples. The Profiler dashboard should allow the user to load a obfuscation mapping to allow running safely obfuscated applications and still profiling them, keeping the obfuscation map only on the profiler platform and not on the instances themselves.

  4. Allow dashboards to be organized into folders

    Currently, the dashboards in the side panel are in one big list of all dashboards in the project, which makes it hard to find a single dashboard without a bunch of scrolling. It would be nice to have those dashboards organized via folders, so we could organize related dashboards together and make them easier to find.

    Similar to grafana's dashboard folders: https://grafana.com/docs/reference/dashboard_folders/

  5. Alert policies based on anomaly detection algorithms

    Up to now, only metric absence or metric threshold conditions are available in Alerting for SD Monitoring. Adding some anomaly detection algorithm can be helpful in some cases.

  7. Add ability to copy stackdriver dashboard between projects

    A pretty common setup is to have a gcp project for dev and prod environments. It would be great to have an ability to setup service dashboard in one gcp project(dev) and later copy dashboard as template for another gcp project.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  16. 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?

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
