Announcing oneInsight – A visualization Addon for OpenNebula

We’re pleased to announce oneInsight, a visualization addon for OpenNebula that allows users to have at-a-glance, an insight of the load of managed hosts. It provides various kinds of load mappings, that currently include the following metrics:

  • CPU used by OpenNebula-managed virtual machines;
  • Memory used by managed virtual machines;
  • Effective CPU used by all system processes, including processes outside of managed virtual machines;
  • Effective memory used by all system processes.

Here is a screenshot showing an overview of CPU used.

Benefits

oneInsight enables many benefits, as well for cloud operators than for business managers:

  • Provides a simple and comprehensible load charting that allows you to have at-a-glance an accurate insight on how servers are loaded, so to let you plan migrations and capacity upgrading if necessary;
  • Provides, via tooltip and popup, details about each server in zero or one click;
  • High class visualization that saves you from command line output;
  • Lightweight HTML/Javascript stack that can be deployed on any server within your IT infrastructure, just need a valid OpenNebula user account and a network access to OpenNebula server.
