Good work! I want to roll this in the docs asap, even if it is still partial.

For that to happen, we need to do two things:

1. get you to add Signed-off-by lines as per SubmittingPatches
2. figure out where this documentation belongs

For ops/monitor is meant for "how do I reassure myself my service
works the right way". Think nagios, collectd, munin, etc. Apologies
for not having much content there yet..

The ops/ hierarchy as a whole is meant to be "user/goal oriented".
That is, I don't want to put in a section "ceph monitor commands".
Instead, we need to ask the question "what is the admin trying to do",
and that's the guiding principle for ops/.

A reference-style document that exhaustively lists all possible
actions should go into some other top-level section. Right now, the
closest parallels we have are config/ ("Configuration reference") and
api/, both meant to be comprehensive references.

Let's do this: make your patch put things in doc/control.rst, with the
title "Control commands", and have doc/index.rst toctree have, below
config, an entry for control. I can take it from there if we want to
reorganize the document more.
