Have you tried Ceilometer component ? Which will give you the above said meters. And in horizon GUI, there is an interface to see these values in Graph / neumaric mode. I hope, this is what you are looking for.

hi bipin, yes currently we are using ceilometer. but what we are looking at is more on real time instance utilization monitoring.

I dont think there is a project available under openstack. But you can look for some commercial projects for this.

I have deployed monasca as well along with openstack, but i think it is for tenant monitoring, it does not support individual instance monitoring. Please let me know if i am wrong, and how individual instance monitoring is possible in monasca?

Ceilometer has timer based pollsters to grab data from libvirt for instance utilization, default 10 minutes, which means real time at seconds level is not supported very well, there are lots of issues when you try to reduce polling interval to seconds, even in POC environment.
