Project description

Team and repository tags


monasca-api is a RESTful API server that is designed with a layered architecture.


The full API Specification can be found in docs/

Python Monasca API Implementation

To install the python api implementation, git clone the source and run the following command:

$ sudo python install

If it installs successfully, you will need to make changes to the following two files to reflect your system settings, especially where kafka server is located:


Once the configuration files are modified to match your environment, you can start up the server by following the following instructions.

To start the server, run the following command:

Running the server in foreground mode
$ gunicorn -k eventlet --worker-connections=2000 --backlog=1000 --paste /etc/monasca/api-config.ini

Running the server as daemons
$ gunicorn -k eventlet --worker-connections=2000 --backlog=1000 --paste /etc/monasca/api-config.ini -D

To check if the code follows python coding style, run the following command from the root directory of this project

$ tox -e pep8

To run all the unit test cases, run the following command from the root directory of this project

$ tox -e py36

Start the Server - for Apache

To start the server using Apache: create a modwsgi file, create a modwsgi configuration file, and enable the wsgi module in Apache.

The modwsgi configuration file may look something like this, and the site will need to be enabled:

Listen 8070

<VirtualHost *:8070>

    WSGIDaemonProcess monasca-api processes=4 threads=1 socket-timeout=120 user=mon-api group=monasca python-path=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages
    WSGIProcessGroup monasca-api
    WSGIApplicationGroup monasca-api
    WSGIScriptAlias / /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/monasca_api/api/wsgi/

    WSGIPassAuthorization On

    LogLevel info
    ErrorLog /var/log/monasca-api/wsgi.log
    CustomLog /var/log/monasca-api/wsgi-access.log combined

    <Directory /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/monasca_api>
      Require all granted

    SetEnv no-gzip 1


The wsgi file may look something like this:

from monasca_api.api import server

application = server.get_wsgi_app(config_base_path='/etc/monasca')

Java Implementation

Details on usage can be found here

WARNING: The Java implementation of Monasca API is DEPRECATED and will be removed in future release.
