For monitoring, there seems to be a lot of buzz/interest about the new Monasca project (https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Monasca) but you're probably going to get as many different solutions are there are products.
You can have a look at the etherpad from the Paris Ops summit session on monitoring to give you an idea: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/kilo-summit-ops-monitoring

We've found Shinken to be able to scale pretty well and cope without too much problems to the thousands of services we're throwing at it. We use Graphite for data collection and Grafana for data visualization.

For logging, the Openstack Infra team uses the ELK stack (Elastic search, Logstash, Kibana) for collecting/aggregating/visualizing/searching logs: http://ci.openstack.org/logstash.html

I'll let the other operators chime in on the security side of things.

Hi All,

What is the suggestion to monitor (resource, security) of a large scale OS deployment.

1) For Resource :
I tried Nagios and Zabbix they are good at certain extent but is there any other suggestion ?

2) For Security /logging etc, i am planning to use Ossec and  Elastic search . any suggestion for here ?
