Monitoring Orchestrator for Clouds

Project description

# CloudMon

CloudMon is a monitoring orchestrator for clouds. Cloudmon integrates directly an IaaS plataform (currently works with Apache CloudStack and AWS EC2) with a monitoring plataform (Zabbix).

On the fly, CloudMon will:

  • create, delete or change status of zabbix hosts (each host corresponds to an IaaS VM) and even update its configurations (templates, hostgroups, macros…) replicating the changes (created/removed/stopped) ocurred within the VMs.

  • Read VMs [resource tags]( and take different actions based on its values.

  • Associate zabbix hosts to predefined templates or hostgroups.

  • Simultaneously monitor multiple Cloud regions (different or same IaaS).

CloudMon works as a Python Daemon that retrieves IaaS data through CloudStack API, AWS EC2 API and/or its event queues, processing that data and taking the proper action in Zabbix through the Zabbix API.

CloudMon requires a Zabbix Agent installed to ensure proper functionality.

CloudMon has been tested and used in CentOS environments and Python 2.7.
