  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. Google lookup

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

  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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  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. 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.
