Dashboard Specific Requirements
The following requirements exist:
  • The openstack (OpenStack Cloud Monitoring) probe version 1.0 or later must be installed and configured.
  • The Metrics for Openstack Dashboard must be enabled in the openstack probe to populate the dashboard with data. The easiest way to enable the metrics is to configure the probe with a template. The default template for the probe contains all the required metric settings.
