thanks for the pointers Sam.

I took a quick look.
I agree that the VM Heartbeat / Health-check looks like a good fit into Masakari.

Currently your instance monitoring looks like it is strictly black-box type monitoring thru libvirt events.
Is that correct ?
i.e. you do not do any intrusive type monitoring of the instance thru the QUEMU Guest Agent facility
       correct ?

I think this is what VM Heartbeat / Health-check would add to Masaraki.
Let me know if you agree.

Hi Greg,

In Masakari [0] for VMHA, we have already implemented some what
similar function in masakri-monitors.
Masakari-monitors runs on nova-compute node, and monitors the host,
process or instance failures.
Masakari instance monitor has similar functionality with what you
have described.
Please see [1] for more details on instance monitoring.

Once masakari-monitors detect failures, it will send notifications to
masakari-api to take appropriate recovery actions to recover that VM
from failures.
