On the Credential Name and Lockbox page, provide a name to identify the credential, and select a lockbox in which you want to keep the credential. A lockbox can be used to group credentials for access or security. In smaller Foglight installations, using the default System lockbox should be sufficient.

Exploring the OpenStack Environment Monitoring tab

The OpenStack Environment Monitoring tab contains tiles which represent the various configured resource objects found in the OpenStack infrastructure.

When you click a tile, the Quick View below the tab is refreshed to display the list of infrastructure resource objects along with their status. A summary of the resource utilization of each object or group of objects is shown in the Summary frame.

For each resource object type (Regions, Availability Zones, Host Aggregates, Hosts, Volumes, and Instances) the default view when clicking a tile is all objects, such as All Hosts. This view can be seen in the object list view in the left frame of the Quick View with top resource consumers in the group in the right frame.

The four embedded views in the right frame display graphs and tables showing the following:

Top CPU Consumers — those members with the highest average CPU utilization.
Top Memory Consumers — those members with the highest memory utilization.
Top Network Consumers — those members consuming most network bandwidth.
Top Disk Consumers — those members with the highest average disk utilization.

An embedded Alarms view displays a list of alarms and when they were raised.

Click the Tile Customizer icon.
Click Apply.

Selecting an individual region in the left frame refreshes the summary frame to display a list of related items along with spinners and graphs that show CPU Utilization, Network Usage, Memory Utilization, and Disk Throughput.
