[Openstack-operators] Monitoring system for openstack

Hi Vivek,
I recently tried a few different solutions:

Monitoring Compute Services with Munin
Monitoring Instances using Munin and collectd
Monitoring Storage Service using StatsD/Graphite
Monitoring MySQL with Hyperic

I also played with Zabbix and Hyperic to do other things other than just
I tried zenoss as well as Icinga,  but these seem to assume you have a PhD
in Rocket Science to set up. (I'm joking, I'm pretty sure server monitoring
isn't covered on that course... ;-))

Out of the box, it was easy to do monitoring using Munin and Collectd, but
these are RRD based solutions.  The nice thing about these solutions though
is that its incredibly easy to use with the hosts and instances.
I found Hyperic to be on par with Zabbix and Icinga, but easier to set up
coming from 0-knowledge of Zabbix, Zenoss and Icinga - but I can't remember
if there were OpenStack specifics in Hyperic.  With VMware applying for
Gold membership in OpenStack and that Hyperic is a SpringSource product -
things might change here.
