In our scenario we consider a tenant who uses several resources such as VMs and network resources. We aim to compute the availability and reliability of each resource.

Is there any Restfull tool which collects the information about the up and down time for each resource?

If not, which OpenStack module may be extended in order to collect this information (using probing tests for example)?

You can use cloud kitty,

CloudKitty proposes the following way to interact with it :

There are billing services for OpenStack (CloudKitty), and metric collection services that feed into it (Ceilometer/Gnocchi, Monasca). It may be possible to repurpose one of those for measuring uptime (although I'm not sure if the measurements will be granular enough for your purposes).

Masakari is a service for providing High Availability of tenant workloads, so that might be a piece to start looking at extending.
