   Analytics & Visualisation on OpenStack

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.

AVOS Dashboard

Install Instructions

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:

  1. 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" )
  2. Clone AVOS fresh (i.e. 'git clone' )
  3. Copy openstack_dashboard/local/ to openstack_dashboard/local/
  4. Edit openstack_dashboard/local/, find the line that defines OPENSTACK_HOST and change the IP to point to your control node.
  5. From the root folder run: python runserver xx.xx.xx.xx:xx (passing the IP and port you want to run horizon on)
  6. 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.

Current Limitations:

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.

Using Horizon

See doc/source/topics/install.rst about how to install Horizon in your OpenStack setup. It describes the example steps and has pointers for more detailed settings and configurations.

It is also available at

Getting Started for Developers

doc/source/quickstart.rst or describes how to setup Horizon development environment and start development.
