The ability to monitor the Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) where VNFs are in operation will be a key part of Service Assurance within an NFV environment, in order to enforce SLAs or to detect violations, faults or degradation in the performance of NFVI resources so that events and relevant metrics are reported to higher level fault management systems. If fixed function appliances are going to be replaced by virtualized appliances the service levels, manageability and service assurance needs to remain consistent or improve on what is available today. As such, the NFVI needs to support the ability to monitor:
All of the statistics and events gathered must be collected in-service and must be capable of being reported by standard Telco mechanisms (e.g. SNMP), for potential enforcement or correction actions. In addition, this information could be fed to analytics systems to enable failure prediction, and can also be used for intelligent workload placement.
The output of the project will provide interfaces to support monitoring of the NFVI
