Announcing Splunk Add-On for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) at GCPNEXT16!

This week Splunk is thrilled to be speaking and exhibiting at GCPNEXT16 to announce the availability of a Splunk Add-On for Google Cloud Platform.  This free add-on available on Splunkbase, provides IT Ops Teams with secure access to GCP Pub/Sub events that you can collect, search, analyze and monitor in Splunk to maintain the security and reliability of mission critical services.  This includes any logs from GCP Services such as App Engine, Compute Engine, Container Engine, BigQuery, etc. that have been exported to Pub/Sub through Stackdriver Logging. Splunk’s Add-On also includes secure access to GCP’s Stackdriver Monitoring API which allow you to collect time series performance metrics from App Engine, Compute Engine, Cloud SQL, etc.  in Splunk.  

Using the prebuilt panels, IT Ops team members can build dashboards / reports and allow you to quickly drill into GCP events:
