What is VM instance metadata in Google Cloud and how to set it up?
VM instance metadata in Google Cloud is information that you can associate with a virtual machine instance. It can be used to store custom data, such as configuration settings or parameters that are specific to that instance.
To set up VM instance metadata in Google Cloud, follow these steps:
- Open the Google Cloud Console and go to the Compute Engine page.
- Select the virtual machine instance for which you want to set up metadata.
- Click the "Edit" button at the top of the page.
- Scroll down to the "Custom metadata" section.
- Click "Add item" to add a new key-value pair of metadata.
Each key-value pair represents a metadata entry. The key is a name that you provide, and the value is the associated data. You can add multiple key-value pairs for different types of metadata.
Once you have set up the metadata, you can access it from within your virtual machine instance. The metadata is available through the instance's metadata server, which is a RESTful API that you can query from within the instance to retrieve the metadata values.
For example, you can retrieve the value of a metadata key using the following command within the instance:
curl -H "Metadata-Flavor: Google" http://metadata.google.internal/computeMetadata/v1/instance/attributes/<KEY>
<KEY> with the name of the metadata key you want to retrieve.
By leveraging VM instance metadata, you can dynamically pass configuration information or other data to your instances, making them more flexible and adaptable to varying requirements.
