I think we are mixing two different problems here - one is the current
composable services integration for fluentd and sensu isn't documented, we
should fix that.

This is a different problem, and IIRC we agreed that only client side
support for monitoring tools was in-scope for TripleO.  The expectation is
that folks will stand up a separate logging/monitoring environment, or that
they will have existing servers to integrate with.

There have been discussions around how to deploy such services, and AFAIK
the suggestion is to use this ansible solution:


AFAIK there is no plan to deploy these tools via TripleO (and IMO that's
correct, we don't really want to duplicate efforts here).
