GCP log forwarding options

Considerations

Headerless API

  • Best suited for low log volumes, since it performs one API call for each log record it sends.
  • Does not incur any extra cost to your GCP subscription.
  • If your log volume increases, this solution might hit the quota limits of your New Relic account.

Dataflow job

  • Best suited for larger log volumes, since it groups log records in batches before sending them to New Relic.
  • Reduces the number of API calls and allows you to reduce your quota usage.
  • May incur extra costs at your GCP subscription, due to the execution of a Dataflow job in your premises.
