Description Luca Miccini 2017-12-11 12:39:13 UTC
Description of problem:

The current volume resource type (/etc/ceilometer/gnocchi_resources.yaml) only collects the following metrics / attributes:

  - resource_type: volume
      - 'volume'
      - 'volume.size'
      - 'volume.create'
      - 'volume.delete'
      - 'volume.update'
      - 'volume.resize'
      - 'volume.attach'
      - 'volume.detach'
      display_name: resource_metadata.display_name

It would be useful to collect instance_id and image_id as additional attributes to allow operators/users to have feature parity (and "visibility parity") between instances booted from images (with ephemeral storage) and instances booted from volumes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. deploy osp10
2. create cinder volume from image, or create an instance from image (into new volume)
3. check output from gnocchi resource show <UUID> --type volume

Actual results:

no instance_id or image_id attributes are present

Expected results:

instance_id and image_id uuid's to be collected and stored as attributes for cinder volumes

Comment 4 Luca Miccini 2017-12-15 17:42:13 UTC
I've been able to collect volume_type and image_id for volumes like the following:

gnocchi resource-type update -a volume_type:string:false volume
gnocchi resource-type update -a image_id:string:false volume

[stack@undercloud-10 ~]$ gnocchi resource-type show  volume
| Field                   | Value                                                     |
| attributes/display_name | max_length=255, min_length=0, required=False, type=string |
| attributes/image_id     | max_length=255, min_length=0, required=False, type=string |
| attributes/volume_type  | max_length=255, min_length=0, required=False, type=string |
| name                    | volume                                                    |
| state                   | active                                                    |

and editing /etc/ceilometer/gnocchi_resources.yaml like:

  - resource_type: volume
      - 'volume'
      - 'volume.size'
      - 'volume.create'
      - 'volume.delete'
      - 'volume.update'
      - 'volume.resize'
      - 'volume.attach'
      - 'volume.detach'
      display_name: resource_metadata.display_name
      volume_type: resource_metadata.volume_type
      image_id: resource_metadata.glance_metadata[?key = "image_id"].value

Comment 5 Mehdi ABAAKOUK 2017-12-18 07:03:23 UTC
Note that we will not support upgrade if the Ceilometer resource-types are not those created by Ceilometer.

Tracking new information always need code change, just hacking resource-types and yaml as workaround is rarely enough.

So, this solution only partially works, only samples built from notification will have image_id set. For samples built by ceilometer-agent-central, the image_id will be empty.

Your change will make the next major OSP upgrade fail for sure.

Comment 7 Mehdi ABAAKOUK 2018-03-26 06:24:27 UTC
This have been implemented upstream and will be part of OSP14 as planned.

Comment 18 Leonid Natapov 2018-12-12 10:15:28 UTC
testing instructions is basically in the description of the bug.

Comment 20 Mehdi ABAAKOUK 2018-12-12 11:55:31 UTC
RFE are usually not backported. Also this feature have some database schema upgrade, that will break upgrade scenario if we backport it.

Comment 22 Leonid Natapov 2019-01-15 12:46:04 UTC
Mehdi,please,provide testing instructions for this RFE. Thanks !

Comment 23 Mehdi ABAAKOUK 2019-01-16 07:05:10 UTC
1. create cinder volume from image, or create an instance from image (into new volume)
2. wait 5 minutes to let Ceilometer gather some data
3. check output from gnocchi resource show <VOLUME_UUID> --type volume
