Monasca/Logging

This page documents the Monasca Logging solution that is in progress.

Log Management - Client Side

Monasca Log Agent - Logstash

Monitors one or more log files, adds meta information (e.g. dimensions), authenticates with KeyStone and sends the logs (in a bulk) to the Monasca Log API.
Base technology: Logstash
Plugin: https://github.com/FujitsuEnablingSoftwareTechnologyGmbH/logstash-output-monasca_log_api

Monasca Log Agent - Beaver

Monitors one file, adds meta information (e.g. dimensions), authenticates with KeyStone and sends the logs (in a bulk) to the Monasca Log API.

Log Data Flow

The following diagram visualizes the integration of logs in the processing pipeline of Monasca. We indicated some short cuts we want to take as a first step. Also, we indicated some advanced functionality (multi-tenancy) that we plan for the future.
