Monitoring VM creation

Hello everybody,

I'm looking for a way to monitor VM creation by users. More precisely I would like to be informed by e-mail when a User creates a VM or even if a specific user logs into the Openstack Horizon dashboard.

In my current environment I monitor VM creation by using a custom bash script in the Heat Template. But this only works for users who are using templates. I have no way of knowing when a users logs into the Dashboard.

For logging and monitoring I'm using Kibana, Grafana and Nagios. I recently tested Ceilometer but it doesn't look so promising.

Does anybody have a suggestion on how I could achieve this?

Thank you and best regards,
