The Monitoring Framework is a set of tools which allow performing several monitoring operations in the platform resulting from the INDIGO-Datacloud project ( The Monitoring Framework is based on Zabbix, as the collector of the monitoring information coming from different sources, due to its maturity, its community support and its flexibility for different environments.

The Monitoring Framework is divided in several main parts:

  • The Zabbix server (with the corresponding configuration and some support scripts);
  • The Zabbix wrapper, created for enabling a REST API for Zabbix;
  • Several probes, with different monitoring purposes (OCCI, Heapster, etc.).

The version of the OCCI and Heapster probes provided for the INDIGO-1 release is v0.95.
