Support for GCP BigQuery in Resources

AUTHOR: The Compute Software team

GCP BigQuery Tables and Datasets running in your GCP projects can now be viewed in the Resources section.

The Resources section provides an overview of all Compute Engine, Persistent Disk, Cloud Function, and Cloud SQL, as well as Committed Use Discounts found in your projects.

Resources Overview

At the top of the Resources overview section, you will find the Total Resource Count. These are the resources that are running across all of your projects for the services currently being supported by the platform. Below Total Resource Count, you can see a breakdown of counts by Service, Service Kind, Service State, and Tagging.

You will also find a histogram of Resource Count by Age. This information is helpful in assessing whether modernization improvements can be made to the resources you are running.

Resources Inventory Table

If you navigate to the "Inventory" tab, you will find detailed resource information.

Clicking on a Big Query resource will open an overlay with detailed information, including Creation Date, Num Bytes, Num Rows, Last Modified Time, and Location. You will also see utilization metrics and properties that have been set.

From the Filters menu, click on the Service Kind category and select the value "Discount."
