The Monitoring Manager provides proper resources to experimenters requiring monitoring service. For experimenters requiring monitoring services, the Monitoring Manager provides, via Openstack, the installation of an additional Virtual Machine pre-configured with Zabbix Server. All Virtual Machines requested by the experimenter will be installed with Zabbix Agent, per-configured to communicate with experimenter’s Zabbix Server. The experimenters receive full administrations rights of Zabbix Server, in order to be able to configure the server according the specific needs of the experimenter.
The MonitoringResource node type is defined as follows, as per node types page: node_types:
MonitoringResource: derived_from: eu.softfire.BaseResource description: "Defines the Zabbix monitoring resource requested" properties: testbed: type: string required: true description: "Location where to deploy the monitoring server" lan_name: type: string required: true description: "Openstack lan name where to deploy the monitoring server"
This node type has two properties:
testbed: in case the experimenter requires deployment of VMs on more than one testbed is it possible to define on which testbed the Zabbix Server VM will be deployed
lan_name: it possible to define on which Openstack lan the Zabbix Server VM will be deployed
