Abstract: Cloud Monitoring plays a crucial role in providing application guarantees like performance, availability, and security. We can understand cloud computing as technologies that rely on the Internet to satisfy the computing needs of users, who do not generally own the physical infrastructure. All services are often provided by a third party with several common business applications online. Users can choose the services they want and access them from a web browser, while the software and data are stored on third party’s company. Cloud Monitoring is an Integral part of maintenance. Requirement for a monitoring solution for cloud are totally different from legacy and virtualized Monitoring Environment .There are many third party solutions are available for cloud monitoring. But there is lack of standard model which covers all required parameter needed to be covered in solution so that an exhaustive report can be produced for service provider. This paper is intend to provide a brief introduction of cloud computing with cloud monitoring fundamental and its requirement including EUCALYPTUS an open source software framework and other related framework needed to implement cloud solution.
