The CloudWatch implementation in jclouds is an API (see [1]), so in 
principle it should be possible to point it an any endpoint the supports 
the same operations, even if that endpoint is not provided by AWS.

 From what I can see (and the OpenStack experts on this list will have a 
much more qualified opinion ;-)), the only component in the OpenStack 
ecosystem that claims to be CloudWatch-compliant is Synaps [2], which is 
in the category "Related projects".

Heat seems to have a "CloudWatch-like" interface [3], but that is only a 
minimal implementation, so I'm not sure to what extent we would expect 
that to work with jclouds.
