Introspective Instance Monitoring through QEMU Guest Agent

Registered by Greg Waines on 2017-05-30

Currently, Masakari instance monitoring is strictly non-intrusive black-box
type monitoring through qemu and libvirt. There are however a number of
internal instance/VM faults, that if monitored and detected by Masakari,
could be recovered by existing Masakari auto-recovery mechanisms; increasing
the overall availability of the instance/VM. This blueprint introduces the
capability of performing introspective instance monitoring of VMs, in order to
detect, report and optionally recover VMs from internal VM faults.
Specifically, VM Heartbeating and Healthcheck Monitoring via the QEMU Guest
Agent.
