Among the advances that the world of distributed computing has had, one must take into account the emergence of new paradigms such as Cloud Computing. The Cloud Computing Model integrates and offers to users several computational resources as a service, on demand. The Cloud model is supported by technologies such as Grid Computing, virtualization and Web 2.0. The monitoring is a very complex issue in this model, due to the particular characteristics of supporting platform. Furthermore, research in this topic has been rather poor. Our research work focuses on Monitoring in Cloud Computing platforms, particularly in private and hybrid. Part of the work presented in this article has been done within the context of the OPTIMIS and BonFIRE projects. The goal of this work is to evaluate existing monitoring tools that can be used in Cloud environments and subsequently included in the monitoring component of the projects.
