CloudMon is a monitoring orchestrator for clouds. Cloudmon integrates directly an IaaS plataform (currently works with Apache CloudStack and AWS EC2) with a monitoring plataform (Zabbix).
On the fly, CloudMon will:
create, delete or change status of zabbix hosts (each host corresponds to an IaaS VM) and even update its configurations (templates, hostgroups, macros...) replicating the changes (created/removed/stopped) ocurred within the VMs.
Read VMs resource tags and take different actions based on its values.
Associate zabbix hosts to predefined templates or hostgroups.
Simultaneously monitor multiple Cloud regions (different or same IaaS).
CloudMon works as a Python Daemon that retrieves IaaS data through CloudStack API, AWS EC2 API and/or its event queues, processing that data and taking the proper action in Zabbix through the Zabbix API.
CloudMon requires a Zabbix Agent installed to ensure proper functionality.
CloudMon has been tested and used in CentOS environments and Python 2.7.
