Ovirt looks interesting but is too immature at this point for my taste. 
Once the project stabilizes and maybe does a 1.0 release it's worth another 

I'm mostly using virt-manager and shell tools combined with nagios/cacti 
for monitoring/graphing the systems though I'm looking at Zabbix right now 
which can do both and seems to be a very nice project all around.
