I have used devstack for installing openstack newton release on ubuntu 14.04. I would like to know how i can check if keystone service is up and running. Also how i can manually start, restart and stop the keystone service.

Earlier i would use keystone-all --config-file /etc/keystone/keystone.conf command. But currently i dont seem to have keystone-all installed.

Assuming you have keystone configured to run as wsgi plugged in to Apache (which is the standard these days) you can just do systemctl status httpd. You will see a list of httpd threads listed, among them will be the ones called wsgi:keystone- -DFOREGROUND for further information you can always look into /var/log/httpd/keystone-error.log and /var/log/keystone/keystone.log

All I know is that I check for Apache (httpd) service as keystone runs on it. You can see if it is working by brwosing to its IP:port and see the response (i usually use chrome). Check which IP:ports are running httpd (netstat -venputa | grep -i httpd). Keystone usually listens to port 5000 and 35357. In my case, browsing and is what I do.

Not a perfect answer, I know. But that's the best I can do atm. Hope it helps.
