EASI-CLOUDS has published its work on distributed monitoring. The paper “Scalable Monitoring System for Clouds” will be presented at the ITAAC workshop in Dresden on the 9th December.
The monitoring system logs the system status and provides the necessary data for billing & accounting and for observing the service quality. It is based on three components, which were developed by the EASI-CLOUDS members Materna, Atos and the University of Mainz. The core component is a distributed and scalable tree structure in which the current monitoring data are stored. Moreover, selected data are preprocessed and persisted in so-called ContextStores.
