The cloud computing has become most popular due to its advantages. The more number of organizations are migrating to cloud to reduce the complexity of maintain resources. So cloud management becomes most challenging task. To reduce the complexity of management and improve the overall performance of cloud, an efficient cloud monitoring tool is required. The cloud monitoring toolhelps to improve the overall performance and reduce the management complexity. The major functions of cloud monitoring are to tracking QoS parameter of Virtualized, physical resources and applications that are hosted on cloud. Hence cloud monitoring tools monitors all the resources and events and perform dynamic configurations of cloud for better performance. In this review paper, we have discussed basic concept of cloud monitoring tool and discuss various commercial and open-source cloud monitoring tools and its taxonomy.
