[Openstack-operators] [monitoring][messaging][rpc] When your OpenStack app is dead

There is known issue [0] in Oslo messaging and it seems resolved in
Kilo. But the UX of this one is very sad. For example, each time when
your AMQP cluster executed a single node failover and recovered running
happy, there is a chance some OpenStack apps, like Nova Compute, may
stuck in broken state and only a restat could help to heal them.

The typical log pattern for this broken state of a service is a "Timed
out waiting for reply". Hence, it may be a good idea to implement
monitoring filters based on that pattern and automatically set an alert
status for affected OpenStack services.
