> It depends on two things: What you're trying to monitor and what hypervisor you have.
 We've been looking into this subject and we want to poll basic monitoring data (cpu, memory,
disk, etc) which can be done at the hypervisor level with the right monitoring tool.

We use Xenserver and want to do basic Ping checks and cpu, memory, disk, ?

We have Nagios in place so I will look to see what level of hypervisor monitoring can be achieved.


Kind Regards,
Marlon Davids

It depends on two things: What you're trying to monitor and what hypervisor you have.  We've
been looking into this subject and we want to poll basic monitoring data (cpu, memory, disk,
etc) which can be done at the hypervisor level with the right monitoring tool.

To get beyond that and dig down into the guests the only thing we've come up with is by installing/configuring
a monitoring agent on all of our templates so that when the template is deployed it will automatically
update our monitor with info about the guest VM.  I guess you could also look at modifying
the virtual router system VM and deploying something on there that would discover all of the
VMs, pull from them, and send it back to a central monitoring system.  But that adds more
work for what is already a pretty light weight installation so it might not be desirable.

I don't think this is going to happen - and if it is, certainly not any time soon.

I dont have a good answer for this at the moment

So you should check out Zenoss's CloudStack ZenPack [1] they poll the listEvents API call
and parse that for events.
Alternatively, you could configure log4j to send logs of warning or higher to syslog - and
thus on to some central logging facility like logstash, greylog, or splunk.
