Understanding the performance data of your cloud is vital for any environment. This data can help you analyze the root cause of an issue and can even help you know when its the right time to expand your cloud infrastructure. However, sometimes this information is hard to find through the platform orchestration interface.
Both Apache CloudStack and OpenStack do not provide this data natively and currently third-party solutions are limited and do not fully integrate into the cloud environment. Since this was a feature that many of our service provider customers were requesting, Appcore analyzed the CloudStack roadmap and determined it wasn’t a feature that was going to be added this year.
