F5 Telemetry Streaming to Google Cloud Operations Suite’s Cloud Monitoring

In the previous lab, you should have generated some traffic that will appear in the GCP monitoring infrastructure.

Example app

Now from the GCP Console, Services => type “Monitoring” in the search box, choose the first “Monitoring” option from the drop-down results.

Google Console Monitoring search

From Monitoring on the side panel => Metrics explorer.

GCloud Metrics explorer

Click on box below Resource & Metric, select VM Instance –> Custom –> custom/system/throughputPerformance/sysPerformanceThroughputClientBitsOut/average and press apply.

Gcloud Metrics Explorer select Metric Graph

This may take a few minutes, but eventually you will see telemetry data start to be shown.
