The history is not what we are looking for. Our idea was to provide visibility of the instances status, as known by Vitrage, through Aodh alarms API (so users that use Aodh will be aware of it).

Regarding the composite alarms, I believe that Vitrage templates are more complex, as the condition depends on the resources topology and not only on other alarms.
