Eucalyptus lets you generate reports to monitor cloud resource use.
Each type of report is for a specified time range.
supports the following report types:
- Instance: The instance report provides information about
the amount, duration, and utilization of all running instances.
Use this report to understand how many instances each user is
running, whether your instance types are large enough, etc.
- S3: The S3 report provides information about the number
of buckets and objects stored in Walrus. Empty buckets are not
reported. Use this report to understand the storage needs of
each user and your cloud's storage needs.
- Volume: The volume report provides information about the
amount, duration, and size of all volumes in use. Use this
report to understand how many volumes are running, and what the
storage size of each volume is.
- Snapshot: The snapshot report provides information about
the amount of your cloud's snapshots. Use this report to
understand how many snapshots there are and from which volumes,
and what the size of each snapshot is.
- Elastic IP: The elastic IP report provides information
about the lifecycle of elastic IPs in your cloud, including
which user is using which IPs, which IPs are currently in use,
and how often and for how long does IP get allocated. Use this
report to understand how many IPs each user is assigned and to
which instance the IP is assigned to, and the running time of
- Capacity: The capacity report provides overall
information about your cloud's resources, including instance
types and storage. Use this report to determine if your
resources are being used adequately, and whether you need to
scale up or down.
You can generate reports in either CSV or HTML formats for use with
If you want to use the data warehouse for your reports, see Set Up the Data Warehouse.
Understanding the Report Format
All Eucalyptus reports contain a usage section. The instance
report also contains a running time section.
The usage section shows cumulative
(cumul.) metrics for each zone, account,
and user. Then the report lists metrics for each resource. The
column for each resource type (for example, Instance
Id or Volume Id displays
cumul. for all cumulative metrics.
When individual resources are reported, the individual
resource's name or identifier displays in that column.
