Analyze Pacemaker logs in Cloud Logging

As an SAP system administrator, you’ve probably asked yourself: why did my Compute Instance restart? Why did Pacemaker restart my instance? Why did/didn’t my SAP system failover?

By streaming Pacemaker logs into Cloud Logging, you can now find the answers to these questions by using a Cloud Logging query template to filter out the noise generated by Pacemaker logs.
