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 OpenStack. This means that you can monitor the flavors, images and servers from a user or consumer perspective. Please watch the Monitoring OpenStack video for a quick introduction that covers most of the details below.
Note: The video is of an early version of the ZenPack that doesn't have as many options when adding an OpenStack endpoint. See the usage notes below for help with the new fields available on the Add OpenStack dialog.
OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable, and feature rich. The technology consists of a series of interrelated projects delivering various components for a cloud infrastructure solution.
Once the OpenStack ZenPack is installed you can begin monitoring by going to the infrastructure screen and clicking the normal button for adding devices. You'll find a new option labeled, "Add OpenStack Endpoint (User)'".
Choose that option and you'll be presented with a dialog asking for the following inputs.
Once you click Add, Zenoss will contact the OpenStack API and discover servers, images and flavors. Once it is complete you'll find a new device in the OpenStack device class with the same name as the hostname or IP you entered into the dialog. Click into this new device to see everything that was discovered.
The following types of elements are discovered.
The following metrics are collected.
Status monitoring is performed on servers and images with the following mapping of state to Zenoss event severity.
If you are also using Zenoss to monitor the guest operating system running within the server Zenoss will present the graphs for that operating system when the graphs option is chosen for the OpenStack server.
$ sudo su - zenoss
$ zenpack --install ZenPacks.zenoss.OpenStack-*.egg
$ zenoss restart
In order to do a development mode installation you will want to clone the existing git repository, and then use the --link flag with the zenpack command:
$ git clone git://github.com/zenoss/ZenPacks.zenoss.OpenStack.git
$ zenpack --link --install ZenPacks.zenoss.OpenStack
