StackHPC participated in PG Day Paris last week, to share our vision of using Postgres to improve OpenStack monitoring, logging and telemetry.
Steve's talk takes a Monasca deployment and presents ways to simplify the monitoring infrastructure to create something more manageable for small deployments. The inherent flexibility of Postgres makes it a good fit for a diverse range of roles - including configuration, time-series telemetry metrics and JSON-formatted semi-structured log data. Given native support across the board, the result is a far simpler deployment yet without sacrificing performance.
Looking ahead from here, Steve's work on delivering an implementation for Monasca's multi-tenant log API will bring new services to our OpenStack ecosystem, and new convenience for our users.
