How to monitor applications on Openstack

Openstack is a powerful platform for orchestrating your cloud environment and many of our customers are taking a look at it. However, to run OpenStack at scale it’s critical to have adequate monitoring in place.

It’s simple to inject Mistral into Linux virtual machines via the cloud_init set up script or a similar mechanism. You can then monitor application I/O in detail for the whole cluster.

You can combine the analytics from Mistral in Grafana or Elasticsearch with other monitoring platforms to get a complete picture of your compute set up.
