High level architecture diagram

Holmes is architecturally an analytics application residing within DCAE.

Normally, it is deployed by DCAE. But if users want to use Holmes independently (without DCAE), it could also be deployed in a standalone mode in the form of ordinary docker containers.

The interaction diagram between Holmes and its relative components is depicted below:

Holmes itself consists of two basic sub-modules: the rule management module and the engine management module. The rule management module is mainly responsible for the CRUD operations of Holmes rules and persisting the rules into a database. The engine management module uses the Drools engine as its core component to support correlation analysis among alarms. The module diagram is like below:

API Incoming Dependencies

List the API this project is expecting from other projects.
Prior to the Release Planning review, Team Leads must agree on the date by which the API will be fully defined. The API Delivery date must not be later than the release API Freeze date.

Prior to the delivery date, it is a good practice to organize an API review with the API consumers.

API NameAPI DescriptionAPI Definition DateAPI Delivery dateAPI Definition link (i.e.swagger)
Data Movement as a Platform APIsDMaaP message sub/pub related APIs which will be used by Holmes to collect the data from and publish data to DMaaP topics.

Data Movement as a Platform Message Router 

DMaaP Message Router API

Resource QueryQuery different resource information from A&AI. All A&AI operations are implemented in the form of RESTful APIs. I'm using "Resource Query" as a general name for the APIs in case there will be too many APIs listed here.


Service Registration/Un-registration

Service Discovery

The APIs used to register/un-register a micro-service to/from MSB .

The APIs used to discover another micro-service via MSB.

API Outgoing Dependencies

There's no API intended for other projects. The internal APIs are like following (there have been no modifications on APIs since Dublin, so we'll reuse the docs from Dublin.):

Third Party Products Dependencies

Third Party Products mean products that are mandatory to provide services for your components. Development of new functionality in third party product may or not be expected.
List the Third Party Products (OpenStack, ODL, RabbitMQ, ElasticSearch,Crystal Reports, ...).

Drools (JBoss Rules)Drools is a Business Rules Management System (BRMS) solution. It provides a core Business Rules Engine (BRE), a web authoring and rules management application (Drools Workbench) and an Eclipse IDE plugin for core development.6.5.0.Final
PostgreSQLPostgreSQL is used for the sake of data (holmes rules) persistance.9.5.0

In case there are specific dependencies  (Centos 7 vs Ubuntu 16. Etc.) list them as well.

Testing and Integration Plans

  • For unit tests, we are going to keep the line coverage of each module to be above 55% or even higher.
  • For the functional tests, because there will be few functional requirements for Holmes, we will main reuse the current auto testing scripts to promise that the basic functions of Holmes work well. As for the GUI part, we will add some new test cases onto the wiki page and attach the corresponding testing report to it. 
  • For the non-functional requirements, we will set up a set of testing env and get them tested by ourselves. Meanwhile, we'll be collaborating with the integration team to get some advice on how to get all those platform maturity requirements tested.


This section is used to document a limitation on a functionality or platform support. We are currently aware of this limitation and it will be delivered in a future Release.
