Monitoring CloudStack with Zenoss


If you didn't see the news last week from Cloud Expo, Zenoss announced the release of a monitoring package for CloudStack. The initial version permits a cascading view of a CloudStack, and measuring a number of performance issues over time. There are plenty of future plans as well, including the monitoring of the CloudStack management server and performance for a number of additional items including speed of deployment and other factors.

Kudos to Zenossian Chet Luther for pushing out this awesome work.

    Big Fan of CloudStack,

    I think CloudStack is one of the best kept secrets in the industry., the original company behind CloudStack, was an early adopter of OpenStack and one of the founding alliance members. Citrix, who bought, is also an OpenStack alliance member. was working on adding OpenStack REST APIs to CloudStack prior to the acquisition. Citrix plans on continuing this work, and working on Project Olympus which is a solution focused solely on OpenStack. Thus Citrix will have two products that support OpenStack: Project Olympus and Citrix CloudStack.

    What is the overlap here? Does CloudStack plan on having OpenStack support? if so when?
