Service and Infrastructure Monitor Overview
Service and Infrastructure Monitor (SIM) operates with the third-party monitoring software Icinga to provide complete monitoring and troubleshooting of the Contrail Service Orchestration (CSO) solution.
When you deploy the CSO solution, an Icinga agent is installed on servers and virtual machines (VMs), which enables Icinga to monitor data on:
VMs that host virtualized network functions (VNFs)
VMs that host microservices
Service and Infrastructure Monitor collects events from microservices in the CSO solution, and correlates the events to provide information about network service, their component VNFs, and the VMs that host the VNFs.
All data is presented through the Icinga GUI. You use the GUI to obtain a quick visual display of the CSO solution status and more detailed lists of event messages.
