Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat OpenStack Platform

2.11. Operations Tooling

This section outlines the top new features for operations tooling.
Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11 includes full support for performance monitoring (collectd), log aggregation (fluentd), and availability monitoring (sensu). These agents are called composable services by Red Hat OpenStack Platform director, and are configured with Heat templates during installation.
Performance Monitoring
There is now full support for collectd clients to monitor performance in the overcloud.
Common Logging
fluentd collects log data and then forwards the logs from the overcloud nodes to a remote fluentd instance.
Availability Monitoring
The sensu agent runs scripts to check whether certain conditions are met, then delivers the results to the server.
