What Is Cloud Eye?
Cloud Eye is a multi-dimensional resource monitoring service. You can use Cloud Eye to monitor resources, set alarm rules, identify resource exceptions, and quickly respond to resource changes. Figure 1 shows the Cloud Eye architecture.
Cloud Eye provides the following functions:
- Automatic monitoring
Monitoring starts automatically after you have enabled cloud services and created resources such as Elastic Cloud Servers (ECSs). On the Cloud Eye console, you can view the service status and set alarm rules for these resources.
- Server monitoring
After you install the Agent (Telescope) on an ECS and Bare Metal Server (BMS), you can collect 60-second granularity ECS and BMS monitoring data in real-time. Cloud Eye provides 40 metrics, such as CPU, memory, and disk metrics. For details, see Introduction to Server Monitoring.
- Flexible alarm rule configuration
- Real-time notification
You can enable Simple Message Notification (SMN) when creating alarm rules. When the cloud service status changes and metrics reach the thresholds specified in alarm rules, Cloud Eye notifies you by emails, or by sending messages to server addresses, allowing you to monitor the cloud resource status and changes in real time.
- Monitoring panel
The panel enables you to view cross-service and cross-dimension monitoring data. It displays key metrics, providing an overview of the service status and monitoring details that you can use for troubleshooting.
