Google Stackdriver Logging Puppet Module


This module will install the Google Stackdriver Logging Agent. This application is required for using Stackdriver Monitoring with a VM.

The Monitoring agent is a collectd-based daemon that gathers system and application metrics from virtual machine instances and sends them to Stackdriver Monitoring. By default, the Monitoring agent collects disk, CPU, network, and process metrics.


To install this module on your Puppet Master (or Puppet Client/Agent), use the Puppet module installer:

puppet module install google-glogging

Optionally you can install support to all Google Cloud Platform products at once by installing our "bundle" [google-cloud][bundle-forge] module:

puppet module install google-cloud


To install the Google Stackdriver Logging Agent, add the following class to your Puppet manifest.

include glogging::agent

Permissions Required

Each GCP machine requires the scope in order to write logs.

Using the gcompute_instance resource, you can add the following:

gcompute_instance { 'my-vm':
  service_accounts   => {
    scopes => [
        # Enable Stackdriver Logging API access

For more information on how to use the gcompute_instance please visit the google-gcompute module documentation.

Viewing Logs

Please go to the Google Cloud console to view the Stackdriver logs.
