Can someone explain to me what is the difference between ceilometer and collectd in openstack? Is collectd a replacement for ceilometer or both work in connection with others?

collectd is not related to OpenStack. It collects performance metrics from the computer on which it runs.

Ceilometer is a framework for getting metrics from cloud resources like virtual machines, Neutron networks and Cinder volumes.

Perhaps collectd plugins could be written for this task, but obviously the developers of Ceilometer preferred creating their own solution.

If you ask what might replace Ceilometer, you should look into Prometheus.
