How to enable utilization feature of Manage IQ?

fine

#1

Hi there,


Hope you doing great.

I am using ManageIQ Container appliance that has a feature of Utilization inside Monitoring. but it is disabled by default. How can I enable that feature? I have to check all my instance utilization. I have attached an image with this question.


#2

You need to enable it in Administrator > Config > Region > Capture Capazity & utilization data and enable the required server roles

Burried deep in the documentation: chapter 4.1.1.3
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_cloudforms/4.7/html-single/general_configuration/#regions


#3

still it is disable…


#4

Do you have the metrics service enabled in OpenStack (Gnocchi I think)?

Also check that you have all 3 C&U server roles enabled, and that your appliance is in the same zone as the provider if you have multiple zones.


#5

We have on boarded aws as a cloud provider. but still that feature is disable.additionally we had also made changes in configuration as per the reference provided by bac Can you provide me a proper reference that how can i enable the utilization feature of ManageIQ?

Hi

It’s probably easiest to refer to the CloudForms docs as they are mostly also applicable to ManageIQ:

Setting up the cloud providers is described here: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_cloudforms/4.7/html/managing_providers/cloud_providers

Setting up Capacity and Utilisation is described here: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_cloudforms/4.7/html-single/general_configuration/#capacity-and-utilization-collections

There’s a chapter on Capacity and Utilisation including some troubleshooting steps here: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/reference_architectures/2017/html/deploying_cloudforms_at_scale/capacity_and_utilization

For each of your providers you need to ensure that the metrics service is installed and running, for example Gnocchi on OpenStack.

The perf_process_timings.rb script here: https://github.com/RHsyseng/cfme-log-parsing should tell you if the metrics collection workers are successfully pulling metrics back from the providers.

Hope this helps,
