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.
