This seems pretty awesome. I threw in some comments

This seems really neat. From my perspective, it seems like it waits
for notifications, and then writes it out to a file. The flask server
seems to do nothing but pretty much serve the contents at /metrics. I
think we should be doing more of this inside OpenStack to be honest
and this can be really useful in the perspective of operators.
I don't want to complicate this more however, but I would love for
this to be a pattern/framework that other projects can adopt.
