The OVIS High Performance Computing Monitoring, Analysis, and Visualization Project

What is OVIS?

OVIS is a collection of sub-projects that, as an aggregate, provide HPC targeted capabilities for lightweight monitoring and high performance analysis and visualization of monitored information and events.

Major Components

  • Lightweight Distributed Metric Service (LDMS) provides a low overhead monitoring, transport and storage capability.
  • Baler provides a generic log file tagging, compression, and search capability.
  • Scalable Object Store (SOS) provides a high performance storage and search capability.
  • Visualization
  • Analysis

Build quick reference

The current distribution includes only the LDMS monitoring, transport, and storage components.

  • LDMS is downloadable here, at github.
  • Information on building, configuration, and deployment can be found in the Documentation in the sidebar menu.
  • The LDMS distribution comes with a complete set of man pages for each of the commands and plugins, as well as a Quick Start guide.
