Doctor: fast and dynamic fault management in OpenStack


Doctor is an OPNFV project implementing fault management framework for high service availability in OpenStack. In this framework, there are two choices for handling fault events which will be notified to users immediately, by OpenStack Congress and OpenStack Vitrage. Congress is the Policy Evaluation Engine for enforcing flexible and dynamic failure identification policy defined by an Operators demands.

Vitrage is a new Root Cause Analysis Engine for organizing, analyzing and expanding OpenStack alarms & events, yielding insights regarding the root cause of the problems, and deducing the existence of faults before they are directly detected.

This PoC shows how fast fault recovery is performed by using these two options, thereby ensuring the required service availability of telecom nodes.
