When applications move to the cloud, the first move is to recreate the same platform on software defined infrastructure. This falls short of the true potential of cloud. OpenStack infrastructure can offer so much more - once cloud users become aware of the powerful APIs and services available to them.
Here we describe how to take HPC cloud migration to the next level. We’ll demonstrate the integration of Monasca services for monitoring and logging for performance-focussed deployments. We’ll show how this unlocks best-of-breed performance telemetry for all users, and how this opens new opportunities for users and admins to understand and optimise their applications.
We’ll demonstrate some case studies using the instrumented platforms available on the hpcDIRECT cloud.
We will describe how we configure OpenStack Monasca to collect tenant telemetry and logging.
We will provide details on how tenant instances are configured to submit their monitoring data to the Monasca API.
We will provide details on how Monasca's transforms are used to extract and enrich telemetry data and present it in useful and interactive ways.
Finally we will demonstrate the whole process operating end-to-end for a real-world test case.
