Maximizing Uptime, ROI and Value of Private Cloud

Business requires production private clouds to be available! Every lost minute means a potential loss of thousands of dollars in productivity, business transactions, even sales. This places high emphasis on the tooling to identify and address issues in the shortest amount of time, ideally before the problem becomes serious. Predicting past trends and future use to determine hardware acquisition before end users are unable to provision the resources they need are also key to maintaining acceptable response times. Finally, you need to know that your cloud is providing the business value you had predicted and your management team is expecting.

Open-Source Logging-Monitoring-Alerting for OpenStack

Logging

Along with the collector, StackLight utilizes Elasticsearch and Kibana to intelligently collect relevant log information, correlate events and create custom views for visualization. The retention period is customizable. The logging solution can be scaled up in response to a growing cloud without data loss or reinstallation.

Monitoring

StackLight monitors the health of your OpenStack private cloud and provides relevant metrics and events. It is based on InfluxDB and Grafana, and provides precise indication of which service caused the failure to slash the time required to solve issues. Similar to logging, the retention period is customizable.

Alerting

StackLight utilizes Nagios for providing low latency alert responses to events. There are built-in alerts on Anomaly and Fault Detection (AFD) metrics and can be extended to create custom alerts. The alarms can be exported to other systems via standard protocols such as SNMP. Nagios instances can be clustered to provide for high-availability.
