At the start of 2017, GridPP deployed VacMon, a new monitoring system
suitable for recording and visualising the usage of virtual machines and
containers at multiple sites. The system uses short JSON messages
transmitted by logical machine lifecycle managers such as Vac and
Vcycle. These are directed to a VacMon logging service which records the
messages in an ElasticSearch database. The records can be viewed
graphically using the VacMon web portal, with selections based on time
ranges, virtual organisation, site, subclusters within sites, or
individual hypervisors.
