Logging, Monitoring, and Observability in Google Cloud

This three-day instructor-led course teaches participants techniques for monitoring, troubleshooting, and improving infrastructure and application performance in Google Cloud. Guided by the principles of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), and using a combination of presentations, demos, hands-on labs, and real-world case studies, attendees gain experience with full-stack monitoring, real-time log management and analysis, debugging code in production, tracing application performance bottlenecks, and profiling CPU and memory usage.

Objectives

In this course, participants will learn the following skills:

  • Plan and implement a well-architected logging and monitoring infrastructure
  • Define Service Level Indicators (SLIs) and Service Level Objectives (SLOs)
  • Create effective monitoring dashboards and alerts
  • Monitor, troubleshoot, and improve Google Cloud infrastructure
  • Analyze and export Google Cloud audit logs
  • Find production code defects, identify bottlenecks, and improve performance
  • Optimize monitoring costs

Audience

This class is intended for the following audience:

  • Cloud architects, administrators, and SysOps personnel

  • Cloud developers and DevOps personnel

Prerrequisites

To get the most out of this course, participants should have:

  • Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or equivalent experience
