The Service is part of the EGI Core Infrastructure Platform which supports the daily operations of EGI.

Introduction

Central systems are needed for accessing and archiving infrastructure monitoring results of the services provided at many levels (Resource Centres, NGIs and EGI.EU), for the generation of service level reports, and for the central monitoring of EGI.eu operational tools and other central monitoring needs.

Technical description

Service Availability Monitoring (SAM) is a monitoring infrastructure framework supporting EGI/NGI operations. SAM is a critical operational tool that supports remote monitoring of services, visualization of the service status, dashboard interfacing, notification system and generation of availability and reliability reports. The central instances of SAM are needed to ensure the aggregation of all EGI metric results and the access to the data at a EGI-wide scope through the central MyEGI user interface. These results are exposed through the SAM central MyEGI web service and its programmatic interface (XML & JSON supported). On top of that, the SAM Reporting System generates monthly availability reports about sites and operational tools for use of the EGI management.

This service includes the following components.
