Monitoring OpenStack Controller

eG Enterprise offers a specialized OpenStack Controller model (see ) for monitoring the OpenStack Controller. This monitoring model reveals the availability of images, OpenStack resource utilization of the OpenStack hypervisor supported by the target Controller and resource usage by each tenant.

Using the metrics reported by the tests offered by this monitoring model, administrators can find quick and accurate answers for the following questions:

  • Is any image in an error state?

  • What is the current size of each image?

  • Is any tenant/project over-utilizing vCPU and the memory resources?

  • Is any tenant/project over-utilizing the storage space?

  • Which hypervisor is consuming more CPU and memory resources when the target controller runs services on it?

  • Is any hypervisor over-utilizing the disk space?
