Google Cloud Stackdriver Trace REST API - How To

The Google Cloud Stackdriver platform allows users to log, monitor, trace, report errors, and diagnose operations when running Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Amazon Web Services (AWS) applications. The Google Stackdriver Trace REST API finds, collects and analyzes latency data associated with the deployment of the App Engine applications. This API displays latency data in the GCP Console, sends requests in JSON format, and returns responses in JSON format as well. The RESTful Trace resource of the API describes the duration of a single application, while its Spans functionality describes the duration of each sub-operation.
