Browbeat started as a project to help determine the number of database connections a given OpenStack deployment uses via stress tests. It has since grown into a set of Ansible playbooks to help check deployments for known issues, install tools and change parameters of the overcloud.

Browbeat pulls in the following technologies:

  • Rally scenarios and automated workloads
  • Automatic graph generation via Graphite/Grafana
  • Log file aggregation and visualization via Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana
  • Performance testing with Shaker, Rally and Perfkit
  • .. more features on the way

If you have a suggestion, find a bug or otherwise please file an issue on our Github.  You can also find us on #openstack-browbeat on irc.freenode.net
