Cisco's Project AVOS attempts to provide a feature rich and intuitive analytics dashboard for OpenStack clouds giving developers and operators quick insight into your clouds configuration, state, performance and faults.
The current master branch is a fork of stable/juno horizon with AVOS installed. For now, the standlone version (working outside horizon) has halted development, though is still available from the branch 'standalone'.
Simply clone AVOS in place of a horizon install, and everything will work.
Alternately, to point a fresh clone of this repo at another instance of OpenStack:
- Make sure you have the dependencies for horizon installed first: (e.g. on ubuntu run "sudo apt-get install apache2 libapache2-mod-wsgi memcached python-memcache" )
- Clone AVOS fresh (i.e. 'git clone https://github.com/ciscosystems/avos.git' )
- Copy openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py.example to openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py
- Edit openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py, find the line that defines OPENSTACK_HOST and change the IP to point to your control node.
- From the root folder run: python manage.py runserver xx.xx.xx.xx:xx (passing the IP and port you want to run horizon on)
- access that URL in browser, login in and select the AVOS panel from the admin section of the Horizon menu.
To access AVOS, log into horizon and see the panel under Admin > System > AVOS.
This is a beta release, AVOS still has some UX glitches, needs full cross browser testing and has a whole load of features still to come in future releases.
Installation of AVOS currently requires Ceilometer and Neutron, future releases will allow for a smart feature rollback that will work without these.
The Network plot (with VM to VM traffic flows) requires modifications to ceilometer not yet released. This feature will not work, and has temporarily been disabled, but the rest of AVOS will work.
We've been using Ceilometer intervals of 5 seconds, by default Ceilometer stores data every 10 minutes. Don't expect your heatmaps to update often unless you change this in your publisher .yaml files.

Horizon (OpenStack Dashboard)
Horizon is a Django-based project aimed at providing a complete OpenStack
Dashboard along with an extensible framework for building new dashboards
from reusable components. The
openstack_dashboard module is a reference
implementation of a Django site that uses the
horizon app to provide
web-based interactions with the various OpenStack projects.
