Hello. I am writing thesis about Openstack monitoring. I need some software for monitoring network traffic between VMs. I use devstack installation, because i have only 1 local server. I don't have any idea how to do that. Maybe someone can give me advice.

Hi,

Yes you can monitor the network traffic in the VM. You need the following tools to be installed

https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf

Telegraf (On VM) - A tool to capture the monitoring metrics from the VM

Add the following to your telegraf.conf to capture the network traffic

[[inputs.net]]

https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb

InfluxDB(On Local Server) - A Database to store the network metrics from Telegraf.

https://github.com/grafana/grafana

Grafana(On Local Server) - A dashboard to display the metrics from InfluxDB database

I hope this answer can help you
