I think that benchmark analysis and matching could stand alone as a
package. I would like to include an openstack client plugin,[1] and it
would also make sense for the distributed benchmark tools to be in this
package when we get to that point.

The only place I could see this fitting currently is in the
enovance/hardware library, as it is doing all of the heavy lifting in
the current implementation. However, I would eventually like to decouple
this operator tooling from the backend logic. I think this would be a
cool idea to present to Ironic, and I see having a hard dependence on
the hardware library as a deal breaker for that.

That said, the python ramdisk work that you are working on is really
about benchmark collection. So it would make sense to include in the
same package as the other operator tooling focused on benchmarks.

What are your thoughts wrt just changing the package name?

[1] I was thinking of using an `openstack health` namespace.
