Gathering of metrics (availability, performance) and reporting in a standard fashion should be part of OpenStack. Best practice sensors should sample the metrics and provide alarms for issues which could cause service impacts. Posting of these alarms to a monitoring system should be based on plug ins. cluster health and monitoring: * each swift service has a "healthcheck" call that can be used by a monitoring system * it would be a big improvement for deployers if each openstack service provided healthcheck apis, and * these were based on expert knowledge of what is supposed to be happening inside This would also insulate deployers from changes in the code that might impact what it means to be running properly. Closely related: providing standardized logging and documenting error conditions. Then, various tools could be applied to the logs (splunk, syslog, logstash, etc.).
