How can we improve Stackdriver?

  1. Analysis report for requests with identifiers in URIs

    Please allow one to generate analysis reports for request handlers that have identifiers in the URI.

    Example of two URIs that can be managed by the same request handler and should have a merged analysis report:
    /api/v1/resource/1/subresource
    /api/v1/resource/2/subresource

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Show the exact lines

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

  7. 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

  8. Google lookup

    I'd appreciate 'lookup in google' button next to errors in logs, or maybe a link to ask for help on group ?

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Please add more HTTP Methods in options to filter

    The options for HTTP METHODS filter has only GET POST PUT and DELETE, but PATCH, OPTIONS and HEAD are misssing.

  12. 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.

  13. Support POST data in Stackdriver uptime checks

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

  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. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Send feedback for modal windows

    If there is an error with the calendar component, you cannot send a screen shot, as it disappears when you click away.
    Add upload screen shot option instead!
