7. Monitoring the Storage Cluster

Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure provides built-in monitoring tools, including a pre-integrated Prometheus engine and pre-configured Grafana dashboards, which show service state, availability, and performance, as well as network bandwidth, migration/replication backlog, memory, and CPU usage. Integration with third-party systems is possible via 100%-compatible OpenStack APIs. You can ensure that systems are up and running smoothly, and troubleshoot problems before they impact end users or third-party systems.

  1. To monitor the storage cluster, go to the MONITORING > Dashboard screen. Here you can get general information about the selected storage cluster for the last 30 minutes; 1, 6, and 12 hours; and for the last seven days. The information displayed includes the read and write operations, chunk services’ health, and the physical and logical space usage. For more details, refer to Monitoring the Storage Cluster.
  2. For advanced monitoring, go to the MONITORING > Dashboard screen and click Grafana dashboard. A separate browser tab will open with preconfigured Grafana dashboards of the storage cluster, hardware nodes, exports, etc. Two dashboards are dedicated to Backup Gateway. To see a detailed description for each chart, refer to Monitoring Backup Gateway.
  3. You can also monitor the backup gateway on the STORAGE SERVICES > Backup storage screen. Here, you can see the information about the deployed backup storage cluster and its performance. Moreover, you can get the information about geo-replication of the selected backup gateways, as well as the data migrated from the legacy versions of Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure. Finally, you can get information about the storage usage in public clouds such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, or Alibaba Cloud.
