I searched a bit around in these forums about how to setup monitoring using cloudfoundry but i couldn't find a right answer. Is there a way i can setup monitoring (alert on low cpu, memory , disk space etc) on the different JVMs running in my instance(s) via cloudfoundry? Send out notification email alerts etc? I know i can setup cloudwatch in AWS, but since i exclusively use cloudfoundry, i want to see if there is anything in cloudfoundry that i can use.

When you set up your deployment in CF, you can specify what happens under different conditions. On idle for example you can set it to "Fix" or to "Notify" the same thing for overloaded CPUs.
This interacts with the auto scaling settings nicely so if lots if instances are idle and you are above your minimum, it shuts down instances. If instances are overloaded and you are below your max, it will start up new instances...nice!
