I would like to monitor my openstack deployment like get statistical data from NICs, hard drive usage, when a service goes down, when a vm gets created or deleted, statistical data from vms like network usage, hard drive usage, cpu usage. I have seen online that tools like Cacti and Nagios can do that but from my searches I could not find any information on how to do that. If someone that has done that before could point me in the right direction it would be awesome.

Thank you

ceilometer- is a tool to go to gather data about resources' usage.

Definitely, if U have experience with Nagios/Sensu/Zabbix/etc - U can use any of them.
