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

2017-02-23 19:12:53 -0500 answered a question cinder create volume API

Hi thanks for posting the question.

Follow this API documentation to specify the volume_type while creating a volume.

https://developer.openstack.org/api-ref/block-storage/v2/index.html?expanded=list-consistency-group-snapshots-detail,create-consistency-group-snapshot-detail,update-volume-type-detail,create-volume-detail#create-volume

Below is an example from the document for your reference:

{
    "volume": {
        "size": 10,
        "availability_zone": null,
        "source_volid": null,
        "description": null,
        "multiattach ": false,
        "snapshot_id": null,
        "name": null,
        "imageRef": null,
        "volume_type": null,
        "metadata": {},
        "source_replica": null,
        "consistencygroup_id": null
    },
    "OS-SCH-HNT:scheduler_hints": {
        "same_host": [
            "a0cf03a5-d921-4877-bb5c-86d26cf818e1",
            "8c19174f-4220-44f0-824a-cd1eeef10287"
        ]
    }
}

I hope that clears your doubt

Thanks,

2017-02-23 18:54:35 -0500 answered a question How to configure ceilometer by using Cassandra database in ceilometer.conf file?

Hi there,

Unfortunately Cassandra is not supported in ceilometer.

Its not mentioned in the documentation: https://docs.openstack.org/developer/ceilometer/install/dbreco.html#legacy-storage

Observe the repo also: https://github.com/openstack/ceilometer/tree/ffc9ee99c10ede988769907fdb0594a512c890cd/ceilometer/storage

There have been attempts to add a cassandra driver support but patches are abandoned and they are not merged

Take a look at blueprint for the same:

https://specs.openstack.org/openstack/ceilometer-specs/specs/liberty/cassandra-driver.html

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ceilometer/+spec/cassandra-driver

I hope this answers your question

Thanks, Nish Patwa

Look for the openrc file located under /root or ~ directory under your deployment host and you will find the credentials stored in the variables OS_USERNAME and OS_PASSWORD
