It’s very simple to get started with your Google Cloud Monitoring dashboards. The first step is to open up and log into BindPlane.
Next select ‘Destination’ under the metrics section.
Now it will take you to a page that presents you with all of your available destinations. Here you will click Google Cloud Monitoring. Click the destination that would like to have your dashboard created in.
Scroll down to the source that you want BindPlane to auto-generate a dashboard for, directly in Google Cloud Monitoring.
Click Install on your desired sources, and you’re all done! The dashboard has been created in Google Cloud Monitoring and now all that is left is to take a look at your shiny new dashboard.
Head over to Google Cloud Monitoring and enter the source you’re looking for into the filter bar. From here you can select one of the Google Cloud Monitoring dashboards automated by BindPlane. Most sources will have a single dashboard created, but some, like Kubernetes will have multiple dashboards available.
After you have selected the dashboard you wish to view, you can now see which metrics are included in the dashboard, and you can edit them to your liking.
