Hello. I'm quite new at Openstack and I've used it for few weeks. I'm trying to log host stats(cpu, memory, network, disk) by nova-instancemonitor service. Everything works fine...but after 1 minute (without any warning) I get an error. Same error coming from libvirt.

(nova): TRACE: Traceback (most recent call last): (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/bin/nova-instancemonitor", line 5, in <module> (nova): TRACE: pkg_resources.run_script('nova==2011.2', 'nova-instancemonitor') (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/", line 461, in run_script (nova): TRACE: self.require(requires)[0].run_script(script_name, ns) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/", line 1194, in run_script (nova): TRACE: execfile(script_filename, namespace, namespace) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/nova-2011.2-py2.6.egg/EGG-INFO/scripts/nova-instancemonitor", line 49, in <module> (nova): TRACE: twistd.serve(__file__) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/nova-2011.2-py2.6.egg/nova/", line 267, in serve (nova): TRACE: twistd.runApp(options) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/scripts/", line 23, in runApp (nova): TRACE: _SomeApplicationRunner(config).run() (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/application/", line 423, in run (nova): TRACE: self.postApplication() (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/scripts/", line 205, in postApplication (nova): TRACE: self.startApplication(self.application) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/scripts/", line 317, in startApplication (nova): TRACE: app.startApplication(application, not self.config['no_save']) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/application/", line 713, in startApplication (nova): TRACE: service.IService(application).startService() (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/application/", line 278, in startService (nova): TRACE: service.startService() (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/nova-2011.2-py2.6.egg/nova/compute/", line 416, in startService (nova): TRACE: self.updateInstances() (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/nova-2011.2-py2.6.egg/nova/compute/", line 439, in updateInstances (nova): TRACE: domain_ids = conn.list_instances() (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/nova-2011.2-py2.6.egg/nova/virt/", line 286, in list_instances (nova): TRACE: for x in self._conn.listDomainsID()] (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/nova-2011.2-py2.6.egg/nova/virt/", line 248, in _get_connection (nova): TRACE: self.read_only) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/nova-2011.2-py2.6.egg/nova/virt/", line 280, in _connect (nova): TRACE: return libvirt.openReadOnly(uri) (nova): TRACE: File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/", line 176, in openReadOnly (nova): TRACE: if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenReadOnly() failed') (nova): TRACE: libvirtError: cannot send data: Broken pipe (nova): TRACE:

It's very strange as the service during this activity connects to libvirt many times without any problem for example: 2011-08-21 22:39:42,719 DEBUG nova.virt.libvirt_conn [-] Connecting to libvirt: qemu:///system from (pid=2061 ... (more)

nova-instancemonitor was removed from the code and will not be in the next OpenStack Compute release (diablo). This code was not being maintained regularly and it was recently decided to remove it and all other python-twisted based code.

ok, but if I wanted to do some load balancing, instancemonitor would be a great idea. I modified instance monitor to do some rcp calls and it works perfectly...if that service won't be maintained, I won't know what to do. Any suggestion? I'm trying to do some load balancing...but without instance monitor!?
