Cloud computing refers to a model for accessing computing resource like networks, servers, storage, applications and services by remotely. Cloud computing offers these resources as a service, namely infrastructure –as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, and software-as-a-service. To use these service two roles involved: the cloud provider offers the service and the cloud customer consumes the service. These resources are efficiently shared and utilized by customers and it is called workload. The requirement of workload depends on customer demands that vary from higher to lower. Based on the customer demand, cloud provider makes the resource available efficiently. In the context of cloud, the workload is based on web-based service or jobs processed in batch mode.

Monitoring the resources helps in measuring the performance of the cloud so that the resource can be provisioned to customers efficiently.
