-Barometer is the project that renames Software Fastpath service Quality Metrics
-(SFQM) and updates its scope which was networking centric.
-The goal of SFQM was to develop the utilities and libraries in DPDK to
-* Measuring Telco Traffic and Performance KPIs. Including:
- * Packet Delay Variation (by enabling TX and RX time stamping).
- * Packet loss (by exposing extended NIC stats).
-* Performance Monitoring of the DPDK interfaces (by exposing
- extended NIC stats + collectd Plugin).
-* Detecting and reporting violations that can be consumed by VNFs
- and higher level management systems (through DPDK Keep Alive).
-With Barometer the scope is extended to monitoring the NFVI. 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 physical 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:
-* Traffic monitoring and performance monitoring of the components that provide
- networking functionality to the VNF, including: physical interfaces, virtual
- switch interfaces and flows, as well as the virtual interfaces themselves and
- their status, etc.
-* Platform monitoring including: CPU, memory, load, cache, themals, fan speeds,
- voltages and machine check exceptions, etc.
-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.
-All developed features will be upstreamed to Open Source projects relevant to
-telemetry such as `collectd`_ and `Ceilometer`_.
-The OPNFV project wiki can be found @ `Barometer`_
