2.4 Use Case 4: Monitoring Behavior at Orchestrate Server Failover and Failback

The PlateSpin Orchestrate Monitoring Server and the Monitoring Agent are installed on the same server as the PlateSpin Orchestrate Server in the high availability PlateSpin Orchestrate cluster. The Monitoring Agent reports data to the PlateSpin Orchestrate Monitoring Server, and the Orchestrate VM Client provides access to the charts created from the monitoring data.

The Monitoring Server and the Monitoring Agent services are made highly available along with the Orchestrate Server and move between clustered machines as the Orchestrate Server does. If a monitoring agent is installed on an Orchestrate Server and if that server goes down, the server is displayed as “Down” in the Orchestrate VM Client (Monitoring view).
