Stackdriver Monitoring: Node.js Client

release level npm version codecov

Stackdriver Monitoring collects metrics, events, and metadata from Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS), hosted uptime probes, application instrumentation, and a variety of common application components including Cassandra, Nginx, Apache Web Server, Elasticsearch and many others.

A comprehensive list of changes in each version may be found in the CHANGELOG.

Quickstart

Before you begin

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the Stackdriver Monitoring API.
  4. Set up authentication with a service account so you can access the API from your local workstation.

Installing the client library

npm install @google-cloud/monitoring

Using the client library

// Imports the Google Cloud client library
const monitoring = require('@google-cloud/monitoring');

async function quickstart() {
  // Your Google Cloud Platform project ID
  const projectId = process.env.GCLOUD_PROJECT || 'YOUR_PROJECT_ID';

  // Creates a client
  const client = new monitoring.MetricServiceClient();

  // Prepares an individual data point
  const dataPoint = {
    interval: {
      endTime: {
        seconds: Date.now() / 1000,
      },
    },
    value: {
      // The amount of sales
      doubleValue: 123.45,
    },
  };

  // Prepares the time series request
  const request = {
    name: client.projectPath(projectId),
    timeSeries: [
      {
        // Ties the data point to a custom metric
        metric: {
          type: 'custom.googleapis.com/stores/daily_sales',
          labels: {
            store_id: 'Pittsburgh',
          },
        },
        resource: {
          type: 'global',
          labels: {
            project_id: projectId,
          },
        },
        points: [dataPoint],
      },
    ],
  };

  // Writes time series data
  const [result] = await client.createTimeSeries(request);
  console.log('Done writing time series data.', result);
}

Supported Node.js Versions

Our client libraries follow the Node.js release schedule. Libraries are compatible with all current active and maintenance versions of Node.js.

Client libraries targetting some end-of-life versions of Node.js are available, and can be installed via npm dist-tags. The dist-tags follow the naming convention legacy-(version).

Legacy Node.js versions are supported as a best effort:

  • Legacy versions will not be tested in continuous integration.
  • Some security patches may not be able to be backported.
  • Dependencies will not be kept up-to-date, and features will not be backported.

Legacy tags available

  • legacy-8: install client libraries from this dist-tag for versions compatible with Node.js 8.

Versioning

This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be General Availability (GA). This means it is stable; the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
