Ganglia - scalable distributed monitoring system

  •        0

Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization.

It has been used to link clusters across university campuses and around the world and can scale to handle clusters with 2000 nodes. It relies on a multicast-based listen/announce protocol to monitor state within clusters. The ganglia system comprises two unique daemons, a PHP-based web front-end.
