Welcome to the Google Cloud Monitoring, Managing, and Maximizing Google Cloud Operations course. This course is the fourth in the Google Professional Cloud DevOps Engineer certification path. This course details how to monitor, troubleshoot, and maximize application performance using the Cloud Operations suite (formerly known as Stackdriver). It then covers how to use the suite to monitor applications, collect logs, optimize application performance, and troubleshoot application errors using Cloud Monitoring, Logging, Trace, Error Reporting, Debug, and Profiler.
This course starts with a high-level overview of Cloud Operations and how it relates to SRE principles. We then go into a hands-on deep dive of each of the Cloud Operations products.
Along the way, Mattias Andersson stops by at the end of every section for a quick recap, and perhaps a slightly different perspective on the topics covered.
Regarding prerequisites: We recommend you have at least the Associate Cloud Engineer level certification (or equivalent knowledge) before attempting this course. You also need to be comfortable using Git for application development, working with Docker containers, and navigating Kubernetes, as we will be using all three extensively in this course.
