Configurating Monasca in local.conf

Is there a way one can configure Monasca as a added service(s) in local.conf?

I understand as per documentation, vagrant can be used for installing Monasca, say in a Ubuntu VM. Just looking for if there is "conventional" local.conf way of running Monasca as an additional service in the devstack installation.

For example: right now, I have a few services configured in the devstack as follows:

## With cinder,ceilometer (but no swift)

## Enable Heat Orchestration service

Thanks, Pradip

no, monasca is not integrated with openstack as yet, but they are targeting it. The product is very very immature at the moment.

Check out these screenshots, for me both smoke tests are successful. You might have given less RAM to vagrant VMs, due to which VMs get held and smoke tests get failed which need necessary notification from threshold engine.

Thanks, Qadeer.

So it leave with option of trying vagrind - I believe.

Thanks Qadeer. Yep it is. I am able to install both mini-mon and devstack valgrant VMs there.

Did you see all the smokes passing? The threshold smoke is failing for me.

Thanks Qadeer. How much RAM you have (or recommended for all the modules to be run correctly)?

Thanks Qadeer. What is your RAM in the system? This is mine:
total used free
Mem: 7.4G 7.3G 70M
