Monitoring Network Services

 

Service and Infrastructure Monitor displays information about network services running in the deployment. This information is related to the Network Service Overview on the dashboard, which displays information about component VNFs of network services and the VMs in which the VNFs reside. In this view, however, the focus is on the actual network service rather than its component VNFs and the VMs in which they reside.

To monitor network services:

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Network Services.

    Service and Infrastructure Monitor displays an array of network services and monitoring parameters.

  2. In the array, hover over an entry to see additional information for the entry.
  3. Click a colored square to see detailed information for the entry.

Table 1 shows the meaning of the monitoring parameters for network services.
