VM Level

VM Level metrics allow you to get the performance statistics of your Cloud instances. In EPAM regions, the default EPAM monitoring info (for OpenStack regions), Telemetry as a service and Zabbix info is provided. Due to AWS Cloud Watch and SSM integration, you can also get the statistics from the VMs located in AWS-* regions, as well as collect AWS CloudWatch data for instances in OpenStack . In the current implementation, the VM-level monitoring statistics is not available for instances in Google and Azure clouds.

Zabbix monitoring services are currently not available for AWS-* regions.

  • Zabbix Monitoring

    Zabbix Monitoring service allows the user to set up Zabbix server monitoring for instances used within EPAM Cloud.

  • Epam Monitoring

    EPAM monitoring is a default monitoring service enabled in OpenStack regions. The service is based on Collectd and Gnocci, and allows to monitor performance parameters of the VMs

  • AWS Cloud Watch

    EPAM Orchestrator allows establishing convenient AWS CloudWatch monitoring for resources hosted in AWS, as well as for those, hosted in private OpenStack-based regions.

  • Telemetry As A Service

    Telemetry as a Service allows collecting and storing your infrastructure metrics - CPU utilization, disk Read/Write operations and network traffic. The service is based on Gnocchi, a metrics database platform, and collectd, a service collecting the instance metrics and sending them to Gnocchi.

VM-Level and Region Hosts Data Representation

there are three types of statistics provided by the VM-level analytics. They are the default EPAM monitoring (for OpenStack regions), The graph for Zabbix server statistics provides you a set of information blocks and controls:

  • A: The Legend. Here, the list of the metrics covered in Graph is displayed together with the details on the key values on these metrics. Each metrics is marked with a specific color.
  • B: Graph. Here, the changes of the metrics values within the specified time period are given. The time period and granularity are specified in the control panel (D). If a graph displays the data for only one metrics, the highest value will be marked with a round dot:
  • C: Peak values. Here, the Last, Average, Maximum and Minimum values of the represented metrics are given. The LAST, AVG and MAX values are the maximum values of the respective type among all the metrics in the graph. The MIN value gives the minimum value of all the metrics. The color of the marker indicates the metrics to which the displayed value belongs.
  • D: Control panel. It allows you to select the graphs granularity (the frequency of the control points) and time period for which the statistics is given. The possible Granularity levels are 1 minute, 5 minutes, 1 hour. The available periods are 1, 2, 3, 4, 12 hours and 1 day.
  • E: Email reporting. The "Email" button makes Orchestrator mail you the detailed Zabbix info. The received E-mail can be used for detailed review or forwarded to the Consulting and Support teams in case any problems occur. This is a very informative and easy way to investigate the issues.

On the Radar page, it is possible to see Zabbix statistics for the region related hosts. Here, on some periods and levels of granularity, you can see the "shades" around the metrics line.

The metrics line itself represents an average value, while the upper limit of the shade gives the maximum value, and the lower limit illustrates the minimum value:
