Event-driven optimization based

Registered by Jean-Emile DARTOIS on 2016-06-01

The blueprint "continuously-optimization" [1] give the possibility to the administrator to periodically trigger an audit but not to react to a situations and changes in system.

We propose an event-driven optimization-based audit control. We wants to select among a list of events which may trigger the audit :
- React to a predicted situation.
- React to a critical situations and changes in system (e.g: threshold )
- A new compute node has been added to the cluster
- A compute node has been removed from the cluster
- A new virtual machine has been created

The events can be created by AODH, congress, ceilometer, scoring engine (long term)

Here is the use case summarizing the previous elements:

   Given that I am an audit
   And I have auto-triggering event handlers set up
   When I receive an alarm notification from AODH/Congress/...
   And that event matches my audit-triggering criteria
   Then I should execute myself.

Note : This blueprint could potentially be implemented by periodic optimizations, but preferably would be more async than periodic.

During last PTG in Denver (Stein cycle) we have decided to set collaboration along with Monasca to implement Proactive HA. In short, we need to add special plugin to Monasca that should trigger Watcher API to execute audit when special alarm has been triggered on Monasca side. This feature will be tracked on StoryBoard, but I will leave this blueprint in active state as a reminder of additional potential features.
