monasca-api  3.0.0
About: OpenStack Monasca API is a RESTful API server that is designed with a layered architecture and supports Monitoring as a Service (MONaaS).
The "Stein" series (latest release).
  Fossies Dox: monasca-api-3.0.0.tar.gz  ("inofficial" and yet experimental doxygen-generated source code documentation)  

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies monasca-api-3.0.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Python Monasca API Implementation

To install the python api implementation, git clone the source and run the following command:

$ sudo python install

If it installs successfully, you will need to make changes to the following two files to reflect your system settings, especially where kafka server is located:


Once the configuration files are modified to match your environment, you can start up the server by following the following instructions.

To start the server, run the following command:

Running the server in foreground mode
$ gunicorn -k eventlet --worker-connections=2000 --backlog=1000 --paste /etc/monasca/api-config.ini

Running the server as daemons
$ gunicorn -k eventlet --worker-connections=2000 --backlog=1000 --paste /etc/monasca/api-config.ini -D

To check if the code follows python coding style, run the following command from the root directory of this project

$ tox -e pep8

To run all the unit test cases, run the following command from the root directory of this project

$ tox -e py27

Start the Server - for Apache

To start the server using Apache: create a modwsgi file, create a modwsgi configuration file, and enable the wsgi module in Apache.

The modwsgi configuration file may look something like this, and the site will need to be enabled:

Listen 8070
<VirtualHost *:8070>
WSGIDaemonProcess monasca-api processes=4 threads=1 socket-timeout=120 user=mon-api group=monasca python-path=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages
WSGIProcessGroup monasca-api
WSGIApplicationGroup monasca-api
WSGIScriptAlias / /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/monasca_api/api/wsgi/
WSGIPassAuthorization On
LogLevel info
ErrorLog /var/log/monasca-api/wsgi.log
CustomLog /var/log/monasca-api/wsgi-access.log combined
<Directory /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/monasca_api>
Require all granted
SetEnv no-gzip 1

The wsgi file may look something like this:

from monasca_api.api import server
application = server.get_wsgi_app(config_base_path='/etc/monasca')

WARNING: The Java implementation of Monasca API is DEPRECATED and will be removed in future release.
