Google Stackdriver is a monitoring, logging and diagnostic service for applications on cloud platforms. Although data captured from any cloud platform can be sent to the Stackdriver API, Stackdriver functionality is highly integrated with many services within Google Cloud Platform (GCP) (and can be used for free by GCP customers ). Google Stackdriver consists of several tools, and includes Stackdriver Trace , a distributed tracing service that has evolved from the original Google Dapper distributed tracing system.
