Collectd exposes statistics that facilitate more resilient and performant telco/NFV clouds.

It is vital to monitor systems for malfunctions that could lead to users' application service disruption and promptly react to these fault events to facilitate improving overall system performance.

By providing OpenStack with system statistics from collectd, there is more data available, which can be used for monitoring, performance analysis, fault detection, etc. using OPNFV Doctor-prescribed enhancements to OpenStack, action can then be taken to negate the effects of any faults in the deployment.

Gaps have been identified and work to improve OpenStack to enable a more fault tolerant cloud environment is well underway. A key part of this work includes expanding the amount of data available about the system (e.g. DPDK statistics), and improving alarming functionality in OpenStack Aodh.
