Fuel SMTP Administrator Notification Service

Registered by Charlie Ott on 2015-02-11

Small organizations benefit from fuel because of it's hardware agnostic design and open source platform. Because fuel and openstack support the deployment of so many variants of virtualization, it is common for the distracted/busy system administrators to neglect the various maintenance tasks required to support the numerous services available. An implementation of an init.d service could support notifications via email, and include scripts that utilize existing nova apis, smtp protocol, and existing network services to alert administrators about events.

Whiteboard

Notification Event Types:

- L3 Agent Down!
- Disk Partition getting full!
- RabbitMQ is Choking
- Disk I/O is below 'acceptable' thresholds.

Integration:

During 'Create Environment' workflow in the fuel web ui, user enters SMTP information and utilizes the email address field already available.

Perhaps the Functional tests could be run on a schedule, with their output as the smtp payload.
