Our Stackdriver Monitoring tool works on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS) and even on-prem apps and services with partner tools like Blue Medora’s BindPlane. Monitoring keeps metrics for six weeks, because the operational value in monitoring metrics is often most important within a recent time window. For example, knowing the 99th percentile latency for your app may be useful for your DevOps team in the short term as they monitor applications on a day-to-day basis.
