This book chapter describes the different aspects related to designing a suitable monitoring architecture for Cloud Computing, aiming to support cross-layer monitoring across all layers available in the Cloud stack. For this purpose, the importance of monitoring services in Cloud scenarios is outlined, followed by a comprehensible analysis of a wide set of distributed monitoring solutions. After that, the particular requirements related to cross-layer monitoring for Cloud Computing architectures are identified and explained. Then, diverse aspects which may fit a monitoring architecture for fulfilling such requirements are explained. Finally, some future research directions and conclusions are highlighted.
