New Relic's integrations with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) include an integration to report Google Cloud Spanner data to New Relic. This document explains how to activate the GCP Cloud Spanner integration and describes the data that can be reported.
Google Cloud Spanner service is a globally-distributed relational database service built for the cloud. Using the Google Spanner Console, developers can create a Cloud Spanner instance, add schemas, write and modify data, and run queries.
To enable the integration follow standard procedures to connect your GCP service to New Relic.
New Relic integrations query your GCP services according to a polling interval, which varies depending on the integration. The polling frequency for Google Cloud Spanner is five minutes. The resolution is 1 data point every minute.
Find and use data
After activating the integration and waiting a few minutes (based on the polling frequency), data will appear in the New Relic UI. To find and use your data, including links to your and alert settings, go to one.newrelic.com > Infrastructure > GCP > (select an integration).
To view metric data for your GCP Spanner integration in New Relic, create NRQL queries for
GcpSpannerDatabaseSample events and their related attributes.
