Overall Satisfaction with Stackdriver

Stackdriver has been used gradually in some General Motors branches in Brazil. It focuses on performing metric analysis, that is, it assists in obtaining data and metrics related to the performance, capacity and stability of services and applications. After we started using it, many stability issues and lack of knowledge of the data were all solved.
  • It is fully managed and more scalable.
  • Real-time log analysis.
  • Log Alerts.
  • For searching and filtering the logs the system is slow sometimes.
  • An agent needs to be installed in each VM to monitor specific metrics.
  • The pricing model is confusing.
  • Record storage and search.
  • Real-time insights.
  • Troubleshooting without interruption.
Honestly, because it is from Google, we also mainly chose this product on the recommendation of other friends and businesses, and because of its reliability, security and ease of access. It also has excellent technical support and warranty. The staff is fast and super efficient and always helps us when we need help.
It is also a great problem detection tool, and this is extremely important for General Motors.
The user can count on the ease of flexible panels and advanced visualization tools that help to identify problems. Among the most common, we can mention:
- containment of hosts;
- cloud provider limitation;
- hardware wear.

And also Stackdriver Integration with other Google Cloud data tools such as BigQuery, Cloud Pub/Sub, Cloud Storage and Cloud Database.
