Monitoring OBS


In the use of OBS, you may send PUT and GET requests that generate upload and download traffic, or receive error responses from the server. To learn the requests, traffic, and error responses in a timely manner, you can use Cloud Eye to perform automatic and real-time monitoring over your buckets.

You do not need to separately subscribe to Cloud Eye. It starts automatically once you create a resource (a bucket, for example) in OBS. For more information about Cloud Eye, see Cloud Eye User Guide.
