Hello everyone,

As I read your list of criteria, most of these are fulfilled by Monasca. 
I agree with Mark that it would be better to focus on one monitoring 
project but I'm probably not the right person to say that as Monasca has 
joined OpenStack after Ceilometer.

Monasca API [1, 2] and client [3].

Any metric which Ceilometer collects can be forwarded through 
monasca-ceilometer publisher [4] to Monasca.

Monasca doesn't provide alerting on OpenStack event notifications yet, 
but we would like to add it.

You can achieve that by using webhook notifications.

As you can see there are no big gaps and we're open to contributors who 
would like to close the existing ones.
