Monitoring Microservices


Service and Infrastructure Monitor displays information about microservices running in each Contrail Service Orchestration (CSO) implementation. This information is related to the CSP Microservervice Overview on the dashboard, which displays information about the VMs in which the microservices reside. In this view, however, the focus is on the actual microservices rather than the VMs in which they reside.

To monitor microservices:

  1. In the left navigation pane, select Infrastructure > CSP Microservices.

    Service and Infrastructure Monitor displays an array of CSP microservices and monitoring parameters.

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

Table 1 shows the monitoring parameters for microservices.
