Monitoring of physical and virtual resources in cloud computing environments and virtualized infrastructures


After a decade of deployment of cloud computing infrastructures and virtualized networks, either for experimental purposes or for production environments, we have now to face the need for monitoring of these environments. The monitoring consists in actuating in two aspects: monitoring of servers, physicals and virtuals, and monitoring of network devices, also physicals and virtuals. The monitoring of network devices consists in collecting data about the resources usage in terms of ports, flows and aggregated. By collecting these data, it is possible to reroute the flows through different routes then avoiding packets dropping and improving the network efficiency. The monitoring of servers consist in analysing the usage of CPU, RAM and hard disk so that management actions can be taken to balance the load, for example, by migrating virtual machines. The purpose of this project is to design and implement an architecture for managing the resources of virtual and physical network devices and servers in cloud and virtualized network environments in order to apply actions to better use the infrastructure as a whole.
