Viewing Information About Microservices

 

When you log into Kibana, you see the Discover page, which displays a chart of the number of logs for a specific time period and a list of events for the deployment. You can filter this data to view subsets of logs and add fields to the table to find the specific information that you need. You can also change the time period for which you view events.

Table 1 provides basic functions of each microservice. The list is limited to some of the external facing microservices.

Table 1: Functions of Microservices

Microservice

Description

Activation Service (Central)

Provides network activation functions to enable zero touch provisioning of devices.

ams

Monitors and autonomously collects data without system or human intervention.

cslm

Maintains EMS device data model for device management functions. The data model contains information like device objects, abstract configuration, device inventory object, configuration template object, device profile object, device image object etc.

Configuration Template Service

Provides configuration template management features for the CSO solution. The features include maintaining a database of config templates, template syntanx validation (e.g jinja2, python, yang rpc), template execution with input parameters using Yang RPC, and input/output validation (provided corresponding schema is given).

Device Management Service (Central)

  • Manages the lifecycle of device objects. Each device object provides an abstraction for one or more physical or virtual network devices.

  • Provides APIs for device management.

Dataview Service (Central)

Serves the northbound applications such as portals or OSS systems, read-only data with paging, sorting and rich queries.

design-tools-central

Provides interface to Network Function Virtualization Design Tools to create config templates, VNF definitions and network service definitions.

Element Management Service (Central)

Maintains EMS device data model for device management functions.  This data model contains device objects, abstract config, device inventory object, config template object, device profile object, device image object etc.

Fault and Performance Monitoring (FMPM) Collector Services

Describes APIs used by fault monitoring and performance monitoring system for collecting service check results from telemetry agents.

IAM Service

Provides identity and access management features.

IAM Service (No Authentication)

Provides identity and access management features during password recovery procedures.

Image Management Service (Central)

Provides image management functions.

Inventory Management Service (Central)

Provides generic inventory management functions.

Job Service

  • Provides job management functionality

  • Supports creation of synchronous and asynchronous jobs, track status, rack start and completion time.

Intent based Policy Management

Provides Policy and SLA profile object management service to enable software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) functions.

Policy and SLA management Service

Enables software-defined WAN (SDWAN) function

Routing Manager Service

Provides APIs to manage routing operations such as to create VPN, interface to route-reflector, enable routing on CPE locations.

Schema Service

  • Provides highly available, persistent data store for various schemas used by CSP applications.

  • Provides APIs to create, read, update, and delete schemas.

Shared Object Service

Varies based on type of schema

Signature Manager Service

Manages application signatures

Template Service

Provides config template of CSO management feature.

This feature maintains database of config templates, template syntax validation (e.g - jinja2, python, yang rpc), template execution with input parameters using Yang RPC, and input/output validation ((provided corresponding schema is given).

Topology Service

Provides API for modeling topologies and working with network elements like devices, hubs, spokes, policy enforcement points and other objects.

Tenant, Site and Service Manager Service

Provides APIs for tenant, site and service management

VIM

Provides common APIs to create virtual networks, virtual links, instantiate VNFs, instantiate service chains for various virtual network infrastructures.
