DevOps Tools

Cloud Build

Declare your CI/CD pipeline and run it with Cloud Build. See Cloud Build with Java application documentation.

Artifact Registry

Publish Java artifacts to Artifact Registry, which can host Maven repositories. See Artifact Repository section.

Cloud Trace

Use Spring Cloud Sleuth and send Distributed Tracing data to Cloud Trace, using Spring Cloud GCP. See Trace section.

Cloud Logging

Aggregate logs into a centralized logging console to easily search and view logs. See Logging section.

Error Reporting

Automatically identifies Java exceptions and produce reports. Easily see new exceptions and their frequencies. See Logging section.

Cloud Monitoring

Collect system and application metrics, build dashboards, and setup alerts. See Metrics section.

Cloud Debugger

Cloud Debugger can debug your production application without halting the application. Cloud Debugger can capture application state as a Snapshot, and also able to add additional log messages without redeploying the code. See Cloud Debugger section.

Cloud Profiler

Cloud Profiler can continuously profile CPU and heap usages in a production application with minimal overhead. The profiled flame graph can help you understand performance hotspots. See Cloud Profiler section.
