Wipro has launched its dynamic monitoring framework called Galaxia. The new open source offering is aimed to fulfill different scalability needs of enterprises.
Announced on the sidelines of the Open Source India 2016 in Bengaluru, Galaxia is the latest development by Wipro’s Open Source Practice division. The framework is powered by open source monitoring system Prometheus and is based on an architecture that is flexible and scalable.
Wipro has designed Galaxia to enable real-time monitoring under dynamic environments. It is capable of monitoring Docker containers and underlying infrastructure based on bare-metal, virtual machines, cloud, and hybrid deployments. It also provides features such as regular expressions search and comes with a centralised metric store.
Additionally, the tool offers on-demand monitoring dashboard to help enterprises enhance their existing projects. It can list down containers and monitor hosts and their relationship.
“Wipro is developing new open source platforms and solutions such as OpenApp at the Center of Excellence, which can quickly introduce new digital, analytics and microservices technologies and enable the rapid replacement of legacy applications through a completely open source based technology stack. The robust offerings help our clients innovate faster, make the transition to an open source-based organisation and do business better,” said Andrew Aitken, general manager and global open source practice leader, Wipro Limited.
Not just another monitoring framework
Wipro believes that Galaxia is not just another monitoring framework. In fact, it offers enterprises a unified platform to receive metrics from a variety of sources such as containers, cloud and hybrid infrastructure. The tool also comes with a single API to let developers easily monitor their Java based applications.
Going forward, the development team at Wipro is planning to add capabilities to group related dashboards, generate custom reports, subscribe custom alerts and notifications and enable intelligence among metrics from multiple systems and then create an integrated dashboard. The framework would also remove the dependency on promdash and render its monitoring dashboards by its own.
Developers can install the Galaxia framework in two different ways — either through Ansible or manual setup on the vagrant box. Its code is available on a GitHub repository to tweak monitoring experiences.
