Monasca DevStack Plugin

The Monasca DevStack plugin currently only works on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic). More Linux Distributions will be supported in the future.

Running the Monasca DevStack plugin requires a machine with 10GB of RAM.

Directions for installing and running Devstack can be found here:


To run Monasca in DevStack, do the following three steps.

  1. Clone the DevStack repo.
git clone https://opendev.org/openstack/devstack
  1. Add the following to the DevStack local.conf file in the root of the devstack directory. You may need to create the local.conf if it does not already exist.



# The following variable allow switching between Java and Python for
# the implementations of the Monasca Persister. If this variable is not set,
# then the default is to install the Python implementation of
# the Monasca Persister.

# Uncomment of the following two lines to choose Java or Python for
# the Monasca Pesister.

# Uncomment one of the following two lines to choose either InfluxDB or
# Apache Cassandra.
# default "influxdb" is selected as metric DB.

# This line will enable all of Monasca.
enable_plugin monasca-api https://opendev.org/openstack/monasca-api

  1. Run ‘./stack.sh’ from the root of the devstack directory.

If you want to run Monasca with the bare mininum of OpenStack components you can add the following two lines to the local.conf file.

enable_service rabbit mysql key

If you also want the Tempest tests to be installed then add tempest and monasca-tempest-plugin.

enable_service rabbit mysql key tempest
enable_plugin monasca-tempest-plugin https://opendev.org/openstack/monasca-tempest-plugin

To enable Horizon and the Monasca UI add horizon

enable_service rabbit mysql key horizon tempest

Using Vagrant

Vagrant can be used to deploy a VM with Devstack and Monasca running in it using the Vagrantfile. After installing Vagrant, just run the command vagrant up as usual in the ../monasca-api/devstack directory.

To use local repositories in the devstack install, commit your changes to the master branch of the local repo, then modify the _REPO variable in the settings file that corresponds to the local repo to use file://my/local/repo/location. To use a local instance of the monasca-api repo, change the enable_plugin monasca-api https://opendev.org/openstack/monasca-api to enable_plugin monasca-api file://my/repo/is/here. Both of these settings will only take effect on a rebuild of the devstack VM.

Enforcing Apache mirror

If, for any reason, APACHE_MIRROR that is picked is not working, you can enforce it in following way:


Using WSGI

Monasca-api can be deployed with Apache using uwsgi and gunicorn. By default monasca-api runs under uwsgi. If you wish to use gunicorn make sure that devstack/local.conf contains:
