Yes, GKE usage metering tracks information about the resource requests and actual resource usage of your cluster's workloads. Currently, GKE usage metering tracks information about CPU, GPU, TPU, memory, storage, and optionally network egress.

Before you use GKE usage metering, you must meet the following prerequisites:

  • To track actual resource consumption, the cluster must use GKE v1.11.10-gke.5 or higher, v1.12.8-gke.8 or higher, v1.13.6-gke.7 or higher, or 1.14.2-gke.3 or higher.

  • You must enable Billing export for BigQuery Charges are associated with BigQuery usage.

  • Version 250.0.0 or higher of the gcloud command is required. Use gcloud --version to check.

  • You must enable the BigQuery API in your Google Cloud Platform project. If you first enabled GKE after July 2018, this is already done.
