Opsview Supported

Host Template: Cloud - GCP - Storage

Monitor your GCP Cloud Storage Buckets. Service Checks include API requests, Network Bytes and Bucket statistics (Object count, Total Bytes and Byte Seconds).

This Host Template includes the following Service Checks:

Service Check Name Description Default Thresholds (Warning, Critical) UOM
GCP - Storage - Network Bytes Bytes received and sent by the bucket. N/A B
GCP - Storage - API Requests Number of API requests to the bucket. N/A N/A
GCP - Storage - Bucket Object Count Total number of objects in the bucket. This value is measured once per day by Stackdriver, so changes will take 24hrs to appear. N/A N/A
GCP - Storage - Bucket Bytes Total bytes in the bucket. This value is measured once per day by Stackdriver, so changes will take 24hrs to appear. N/A B
GCP - Storage - Bucket Byte Seconds Total daily storage used by the bucket in byte-seconds. This value is measured once per day by Stackdriver, so changes will take 24hrs to appear. N/A Bs

Usage Instructions

NOTE: The service account used must have storage.buckets.get access to your bucket.

Step 1: Add this Host Template

Add the Cloud - GCP - Storage Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host. If the resource you're monitoring has no hostname or public IP, then open the Advanced settings pane and change Host Check Command to Always assumed to be UP.

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.

Step 2: Add and configure variables required for this Host Template

The Service Checks in this Host Template use the following variables, and they will be added to your Opsview Monitor instance when you import the Opspack:

GCP_PROJECT_ID

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--project-id Arg1 Monitored Project ID ID of the project to monitor

GCP_BUCKET_NAME

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--bucket-name Arg1 Bucket Name Name of the bucket

GCP_CREDENTIALS_FILE

This argument is optional - if you are only using one set of credentials, we recommend not setting it, and instead placing your credentials file in the default path /opt/opsview/monitoringscripts/etc/plugins/cloud-gcp/credentials.json. Ensure this file is readable by the opsview user.

Parameter Position in Variable Name Description
--credentials-file Arg1 Credentials File Path of the JSON file with GCP Service Account Credentials

For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Variables to Hosts.

For mode-specific help, run the plugin with the -h -m <mode> flags. This will list the required and optional Variable Arguments for that mode. The appropriate mode for each Service Check is listed here:

Service Check Name Mode
GCP - Storage - Network Bytes GCP.Storage.Net.Bytes
GCP - Storage - API Requests GCP.Storage.API.Requests
GCP - Storage - Bucket Object Count GCP.Storage.Object.Count
GCP - Storage - Bucket Bytes GCP.Storage.Bytes
GCP - Storage - Bucket Byte Seconds GCP.Storage.Byte.Seconds

Step 3: Apply changes and the system will now be monitored
