    Monitoring and Troubleshooting Overview

    You use open-source applications for monitoring and troubleshooting infrastructure services and microservices in the Cloud CPE solution. These applications offer a visual representation of the metrics in the Cloud CPE solution with extensive capabilities for analyzing data and monitoring alerts.

    Monitoring Infrastructure Services

    You use a combination of Prometheus and Grafana to monitor infrastructure services in the Cloud CPE solution.

    • Prometheus is a toolkit for monitoring systems and defining alerts.
    • Grafana enables metric analysis and visualization.

    You create queries in Prometheus to develop dashboards for infrastructures services, and visualize the dashboards in Grafana. Predefined dashboards for the following applications are included with the cloud CPE solution:

    • Cassandra
    • Kubernetes
    • RabbitMQ
    • Host metrics
      • Node and server metrics
      • VM metrics

    Refer to the documentation for Prometheus and Grafana for information about using these products.

    Monitoring Microservices

    Service and Infrastructure Monitor provides a continuous and comprehensive monitoring of the Cloud CPE solution. The application provides both a visual display of the state of the deployment and the ability to view detailed event messages.

    Service and Infrastructure Monitor tracks the status of:

    • Network services
    • Virtualized network functions
    • Microservices
    • Virtual machines
    • Physical servers

    For detailed information about using Service and Infrastructure Monitor, see the Contrail Service Orchestration User Guide.

    You can also use Kibana to view log files and analyze log files in a visual format. See Setting Up the Visual Presentation of Microservice Log Files
