This is an Open Source ZenPack developed by Zenoss, Inc. Enterprise support for this ZenPack is available to commercial customers with an active subscription.
This ZenPack allows for monitoring of Swift. Swift is the project name for the Object Store in OpenStack.
From the Swift project site:
Swift is a highly available, distributed, eventually consistent object/blob store. Organizations can use Swift to store lots of data efficiently, safely, and cheaply.
All monitoring is performed through the optional swift-recon API endpoint that can be enabled on all of your Swift object servers. Before using this ZenPack you must install and configure swift-recon on your Swift object servers.
Installing the ZenPack will add the following objects to your Zenoss system.
The zSwiftObjectServerPort property is used by the SwiftObjectServer monitoring template to control what port it will attempt to find the recon API on. Normally the default of 6000/tcp will work unless you've chosen a different port for your swift-object-server process.
By default the SwiftObjectServer monitoring template will not be bound to any devices. To make use of it you will need to either bind it directly to your Swift object server devices, or put your object servers into their own device class and bind the template to that device class. Typically this will be under either /Server/Linux or /Server/SSH/Linux so you get normal operating system monitoring in addition to the Swift-specific monitoring.
Assuming you have swift-recon and Zenoss setup properly you can expect to see the following extra graphs on your Swift object servers.
All Swift processes will be discovered and monitored based on the process classes listed above. If one of the processes is found to not be running on a node where it should be, an error severity event will be raised in the /Status/OSProcess event class.
Each of the individual Swift process will also be monitored for its CPU and memory utilization.
While this ZenPack currently has wide coverage of metrics that are important to the successful operation of a Swift cluster, there are more opportunities. The following is a list of metrics that are not currently monitored, but would be useful.
