Stackdriver Monitoring API client library

Project Description

Python idiomatic client for Stackdriver Monitoring

pypi versions

Quick Start

$ pip install --upgrade google-cloud-monitoring

For more information on setting up your Python development environment, such as installing pip and virtualenv on your system, please refer to Python Development Environment Setup Guide for Google Cloud Platform.


With google-cloud-python we try to make authentication as painless as possible. Check out the Authentication section in our documentation to learn more. You may also find the authentication document shared by all the google-cloud-* libraries to be helpful.

Using the API

Stackdriver Monitoring (Monitoring API docs) 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. Stackdriver ingests that data and generates insights via dashboards, charts, and alerts.

This package currently supports all Monitoring API operations other than writing custom metrics.

List available metric types:

from import monitoring
client = monitoring.Client()
for descriptor in client.list_metric_descriptors():

Display CPU utilization across your GCE instances during the last five minutes:

metric = ''
query = client.query(metric, minutes=5)

See the google-cloud-python API monitoring documentation to learn how to connect to Stackdriver Monitoring using this Client Library.
