Operations Bridge and AWS: Automatic discovery and seamless Cloudwatch integration

Sultan Raja ‎07-19-2016 02:56 AM - edited ‎07-20-2016 01:14 PM

The HPE OMi Management Pack (MP) for Amazon Web Services (AWS) 1.20 brings a wide range of capabilities to automate discovery and monitoring AWS Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) instances. Also, you can monitor the AWS Service Health Dashboard based on the services per regions. OMi MP for AWS connects, discovers and collects metrics from an AWS account with mandatory parameters - AWS Access Key and AWS Secret Key.

Key Highlights of HPE OMi Management Pack for AWS (1.20):

Automation is Key

                 When an EC2 instance is launched on AWS Management Console under particular region, the Aspect “AWS Discovery” part of Management Pack discovers the EC2 instance automatically and creates as “Node” Configuration Item in the RTSM with appropriate relationships and key attributes like Instance ID, Instance Type and tags. In other hand, Automatic Assignment Rule instantly deploys the Aspect “EC2 Instance Health” to monitor the health of newly discovered EC2 instance.

OMi MP for AWS creates data source on the managed nodeOMi MP for AWS creates data source on the managed nodeOMi Management Pack for AWS gathers EC2 Availability and Performance metrics automatically from AWS Cloudwatch for each EC2 instances.  EC2 Instance Health aspect has scheduler which triggers AWS MP Collector in the easily customizable interval to collect all available Cloudwatch metrics for each EC2 instance across the regions. These collected metrics stored at the HPE Operations Agent datastore. Events are generated in case of threshold violation. If Cloudwatch detailed monitoring is enabled then the collection frequency can be tuned to one-minute which gets quicker insight on health of EC2 instance.

This dashboard helps to look at the performance pattern for the past duration. Importantly, “Detailed Monitoring” of AWS EC2 can be visualized with OMi’s capability of metric streaming on Performance Dashboard.

 

 

 

 

 

OBR Content for AWS

Blog_Report.jpgHPE Operations Bridge Reporter for Content Pack for AWS brings variety of reports.

AWS Compute Availability by Tenant: Provides the overall system availability and CPU utilization for a particular Tenant for a specified duration.

AWS Compute Availability by Region: Provides the overall system availability and CPU utilization for a particular Region for a specified duration.

AWS Compute Health Summary by Tenant: Provides the overall instance availability and CPU utilization for a particular Tenant for a specified duration.

AWS Instance Availability: Provides the availability of the Compute Instances (AWS VMs). Shows the availability status based on the hour of the month.

AWS Performance Detail by Instance: Provides information about the CPU utilization, instance availability, network In/Out rate, and disk utilization trend for the specified duration for a particular AWS Instance.

 

 

The HPE Operations Agent is not required to be installed on each EC2 instance. The proxy node with HPE Operations Agent must have connectivity to the AWS account through the Internet.

The OMi MP for AWS does not require an OMi Management Pack license. With this version, AWS Management Pack is under HPE standard support (no longer community supported!).

 

 Try OMi now! OMi 10.10 comes pre-loaded with a number of Management Packs that you can try out without the hassle of getting management pack software or an evaluation license.

interesting: is the OBR content tied to a support contract, or is it freely available?
