OpenStack's Horizon Web Interface is a powerful graphical user interface with a large number of web pages. Historically Horizon has been used more for configuration of virtualized resources and service, and not as much for real-time monitoring. However with new services such as Vitrage and Masakari which are introducing fault monitoring, root cause analysis and real-time recovery, there is a requirement for introducing constructs within Horizon to support such operational type functions.
The new Extensible Headers feature in Horizon provides a re-usable mechanism for OpenStack Components to display content in an 'always-visible' header on the Horizon display. This session will describe the new feature and demo its use by Vitrage Alarm Banner. The underlying technologies and new Angular tool set will be discussed. We will also demo the new capabilites introduced in Queen's.
- Learn about Vitrage and Masakari capabilities that leverage Horizon's new capabilities to extend a header for fault and performance monitoring.
- Learn about the new Angular environment underneath Horizon
- See a demo of the new header and how it can be used.
- Explore some ways the header could be used - new upstream developer opportunities.
