Openstack is a multi-layered cloud infrastructure with many complex internal and external dependencies. Hence, when the system is troubled, you need to run multiple commands and check different areas before you can define where to perform a deep dive troubleshooting.
The objective here is to shorten the initial investigation and focus on the most probable cause of the issue.
This is leveraging the knowledge accumulated by escalation engineers while managing real customer environments running Openstack.
Kibana and ElasticSearch also simplify the troubleshooting by making log search and analysis fast and easy.
We will cover how they can be used in a distributed system and integrated with OpenStack.
We will demonstrate the capabilities of the Kibana user interface - searching logs, trending issues, exporting log files and more.
Finally, we will provide examples of cases where Kibana was used to analyze and solve real world issues in OpenStack.
