When this option is enabled, supported services in each cluster will automatically register with CycleCloud, which will configure monitoring for that service.

Supported Services

Ganglia

Every version of CycleCloud ships with Ganglia monitoring support for collecting performance metrics such as cpu/memory/bandwidth usage. If your cluster is configured to use Ganglia (the default in most cases), automatic monitoring will work as long as port 8652 is open between CycleCloud and the cluster’s master node (the one running the gmetad service).

Grid Engine

If you are running the Grid Scheduling Edition of CycleCloud, Grid Engine monitoring will automatically be configured when a Grid Engine cluster is started. The only requirement is that CycleCloud can SSH to the node running the qmaster service with the keypair configured for the cluster.
