Google Cloud Bigtable monitoring integration


We offer a cloud integration for reporting your GCP Bigtable data to our platform. Here we explain how to activate the integration and what data it collects.

Activate the integration

To enable the integration follow standard procedures to connect your GCP service.

Configuration and polling

You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.

Default polling information for the GCP Bigtable integration:

  • New Relic polling interval: 5 minutes

Find and use data

To find your integration data, go to > Infrastructure > GCP and select the integration.

Data is attached to the following event types:

Entity Event Type Provider
Cluster GcpBigtableClusterSample GcpBigtableCluster
Table GcpBigtableTableSample GcpBigtableTable

Metric data

This integration collects GCP Bigtable data for Cluster and Table.

Bigtable Cluster data

Metric Unit Description


Count CPU load of a cluster.


Count CPU load of the busiest node in a cluster.


Count Utilization of HDD disks in a cluster.


Count Number of nodes in a cluster.


Count Storage used as a fraction of total storage capacity.


Bytes Amount of compressed data for tables stored in a cluster.


Bytes Capacity of compressed data for tables that can be stored in a cluster.

Bigtable Table data

Metric Unit Description


Milliseconds Distribution of replication request latencies for a table. Includes only requests that have been received by the destination cluster.


Seconds Upper bound for replication delay between clusters of a table. Indicates the time frame during which latency information may not be accurate.


Count Number of server requests for a table that failed with an error.


Milliseconds Distribution of server request latencies for a table, measured when calls reach Cloud Bigtable.


Count Number of rows modified by server requests for a table.


Count Number of failovers during multi-cluster requests.


Bytes Number of uncompressed bytes of request data received by servers for a table.


Count Number of server requests for a table.


Count Number of rows returned by server requests for a table.


Bytes Number of uncompressed bytes of response data sent by servers for a table.


Bytes Amount of compressed data stored in a table.
