Monitoring Services in a Federated Cloud [chapter]

Stuart Clayman, Giovanni Toffetti, Alex Galis, Clovis Chapman
Achieving Federated and Self-Manageable Cloud Infrastructures  
This chapter presents the need, the requirements, and a design for a monitoring system that is suitable for supporting the operations and management of a Federated Cloud environment. We discuss these issues within the context of the RESERVOIR Service Cloud computing project. We first present the RESERVOIR architecture itself, then we introduce the issues of service monitoring in a federated environment, together with the specific solutions that have been devised for RESERVOIR. We end with a
more » ... ew of our experience in this area by showing a use-case application executing on RESERVOIR, which is responsible for the computational prediction of organic crystal structures.
