Suitable for Both Public and Private Clouds
With its Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework, Monitis can now sync to other Cloud computing providers very quickly - from Rackspace, GoGrid, Softlayer, and more.
Monitis’ Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework gives users the confidence that comes from using a 3rd party tool to monitor Cloud infrastructure in an independent manner. Even when Cloud computing providers provide some sort of monitoring, there is an inherent conflict of interest – as they are keen to show higher uptime. By providing a customized, independent audit of SLAs (service level agreements), Monitis’ Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework increases the credibility of Cloud computing providers.
Features of Monitis Abstract Cloud Monitoring Framework
1. Control Amazon Web Services' costs. Companies that utilize cloud computing can find costs escalate when they use auto-scaling mechanisms to add extra Amazon EC2 virtual servers on demand and, due to bugs or mis-configurations, processes get out of control.
2. Monitis EC2 automatically adds monitors and notifications with an automatic discovery process for newly launched URLs, cutting down on time-consuming setups of other external monitoring services.
3. Monitis automates agent deployment on each newly launched virtual server, allowing for deep, process level monitoring and detailed performance analysis.
4. Monitis maintains historical data on each virtual server start and stop and performance data, allowing failure and root cause analysis.
5. Monitis EC2 allows you to monitor installed software on each virtual server, along with other parameters, and smoothes the configuration management of large numbers of servers in the cloud.
How Monitis Cloud Monitoring Works?
How can Monitis help you in setting up Amazon Web Services monitoring within a very short span of time? This can be explained in the following steps. Firstly, Amazon keys should be added into the Monitis account and then EC2 and/or S3 monitoring should be enabled. Then, you must setup the notification rule on the maximum number of virtual server instances which are running at that time. Then, it will guide you through the setting up of the external monitors for each new EC2 server instance. Next, it will ask you to setup agent auto-deployment for each server. If the user wants to have the advantage of auto deployment, he must input the security key, which may be changed later as per the user's choice.
Then, if the user selects auto deployment, he must specify which parameters and processes are to be monitored on each server and he must also set their threshold values for notifications. Finally, two new tables will be added to customers' dashboards - i.e. running instance table and history table, each having columns with monitoring metrics (e.g. CPU, URL response time, Free Memory). Then, the user may click on these metrics and get the detailed charts for any day as the monitoring has been enabled. In a critical situation, like the termination of server, Monitis can still show the past performance chart, which is very useful to analyze the root cause of failures.
