[OCTAVIA] How to monitor amphora

Hi guys,

As already discussed I had to test Octavia as our corporate LoadBalancer
solution and it was a success.

Thank to everyone on this list that assisted me and especially Michael
Octavia is fully working and without weird nightmare glitches.

Now that I validated the technical part of my project, I need to enter more
operationals questions such as what’s the best way to monitor and log

I would like to be able to get a monitoring and logging agent installed on
the amphora in order to get proper metrics about what’s going on with the
LoadBalancer, is it fully cpu loaded? Is it using all network resources
available, are the file descriptors near the initial limits? How much xxx
HTTP return code the loadBalancer is facing and send those logs to an ELK
or something similar.

Do you know if that something that I could achieve by adding more elements
to the image at DIB time or are there any other better best-practices that
I should be aware of ?

As Octavia is creating a namespace for each HAProxy process, I am wandering
if it’s even possible.

Thanks a lot for your hard work guys.

Kind regards,
