What is Google Cloud Logging?

Google Cloud Logging is a service that allows organizations to store, search, analyze, and receive alerts from log data and events from GCP and AWS resources. This service collects logs and events from various sources and makes them available for analysis, visualization, and export.

By tracking every user action, system fault, application transaction, and network packet movement, cloud logging allows organizations to resolve bottlenecks, review historical trends, and forecast future occurrences.
