New Simple Metrics Service in Beta

I’m pleased to announce the initial beta launch of our simple metrics service which makes a selection of graphs available for Cloud Servers, Cloud SQL Instances and Volumes within the Control Panel.

There’s no additional cost for these new metrics and you don’t need to do anything to enable them – they are collected and viewable automatically within the normal resource view in Control Panel with graphs for the last hour, last day (24 hours), last week and last two weeks.

Many customers implement their own metrics/monitoring solution for deployments as a matter of course, but sometimes it’s useful to be able to quickly check a graph to help identify potential performance issues without having to setup and maintain the infrastructure.

Which metrics are available?

The following metrics are currently available.

Cloud Servers

  • CPU Utilisation
  • Disk IO
  • Network Data

Cloud SQL Instances

  • CPU Utilisation
  • Network Data


  • Disk IO


There are number of features on the roadmap for our metrics service. Of course, if there’s something you’d like to see, do let us know and we’ll look into it.

  • Load Balancer metrics
  • Additional database metrics for Cloud SQL instances
  • Monitoring/alerting
  • Additional metrics for Cloud Servers

Give it a try
