Title: METHOD, APPARATUS, AND SYSTEM FOR ACQUIRING VNF INFORMATION
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the field of communications. Provided are a method, an apparatus, and a system for acquiring VNF information, which can acquire detailed running information of a VNF and providing more comprehensive and more accurate data for determination of fault causes so as to improve the provision quality of network services. According to the method in one embodiment of the present invention, a second VNFM is a monitoring management unit for one or more VNFs, the one or more VNFs being referred to as to-be-monitored VNFs. In this case, the method for acquiring information comprises: an NFVO instantiates the second VNFM on the basis of a software package of the second VNFM, such that the second VNFM establishes a communication connection to the NFVO; and then, during monitoring, the NFVO receives monitoring information sent after the second VNFM summarizes and analyzes monitoring data of the to-be-monitored VNFs. The present invention is applicable to a wireless communications technology.
