I've been working on an openstack project and we need a solution for per vm monitoring (we use KVM instances). I have installed ceilometer but it doesn't have good graphical interface in the horizon. I also tried zabbix but it only supports per host monitoring. What are our options for monitoring VMs (preferably graphical) ?

thanks in advance.

There is a solution that connects ElasticSearch to Ceilometer. See also here. You may want to view a video of a Kibana+Ceilometer demo. It seems that this is supported by Fuel.

Disclaimer: I have no experience, I am just an interested bystander.

I like telegraf (agent) -> influxdb (time series db) -> grafana (graphical analytics and monitoring). It is fairly straight forward to set up, yet flexible. You can easily do things like send alarms to your op team's Slack space.
