Ceilometer project aims to become the infrastructure to collect measurements
within OpenStack so that no two agents would need to be written to collect
the same data. It's primary targets are monitoring and metering, but the
framework should be easily expandable to collect for other needs. To that
effect, Ceilometer should be able to share collected data with a variety
This charm provides the Ceilometer service for OpenStack. It is intended to
be used alongside the other OpenStack components, starting with the Folsom
Ceilometer is made up of 2 separate services: an API service, and a collector
service. This charm allows them to be deployed in different combination,
depending on user preference and requirements.
This charm was developed to support deploying Folsom on both Ubuntu Quantal
and Ubuntu Precise. Since Ceilometer is only available for Ubuntu 12.04 via
the Ubuntu Cloud Archive, deploying this charm to a Precise machine will by
default install Ceilometer and its dependencies from the Cloud Archive.
In order to deploy Ceilometer service, the MongoDB service is required:
juju deploy mongodb juju deploy ceilometer juju add-relation ceilometer mongodb
then Keystone and Rabbit relationships need to be established:
juju add-relation ceilometer rabbitmq juju add-relation ceilometer keystone
In order to capture the calculations, a Ceilometer compute agent needs to be
installed in each nova node, and be related with Ceilometer service:
juju deploy ceilometer-agent juju add-relation ceilometer-agent nova-compute juju add-relation ceilometer:ceilometer-service ceilometer-agent:ceilometer-service
Ceilometer provides an API service that can be used to retrieve
- (boolean) Enable debug logging
- (string) Repository from which to install. May be one of the following: distro (default), ppa:somecustom/ppa, a deb url sources entry, or a supported Cloud Archive release pocket. Supported Cloud Archive sources include: cloud:precise-folsom, cloud:precise-folsom/updates, cloud:precise-folsom/staging, cloud:precise-folsom/proposed. Note that updating this setting to a source that is known to provide a later version of OpenStack will trigger a software upgrade.
