Openstack Vitrage provides a framework for analyzing and expanding OpenStack alarms & events. In this session we'll demonstrate how to close the loop between cloud monitoring and maintaining VNF live and confirmed states, using a generic VNF Manager. This closed loop allows operators to expand their limits and perform automatic actions such auto-healing or auto-scaling. In a live demo we'll show how the generic VNFM uses its auto operations capability to sample the VNFs health, and report its state to Vitrage. Vitrage is responsible for correlating the HW failures with the VNF resource health, and through a process of deduced alarms, notifying the VNF Manager on VNF failure. Once we achieve a closed loop, we'll show the centralized dashboard in the Vitrage OpenStack UI, as well as VNF healing performed by the VNF Manager using the Mistral OpenStack workflow service to act on Vitrage insights.
Audience will learn about VNF fault management using OpenStack project. Demo and presentation will show end to end from failure detection to VNF auto healing.
