Description Shailesh Chhabdiya 2020-10-20 02:49:19 UTC
Description of problem:
While enabling the autoscaling in the RHOSP setup doesn't work as by default "instance_discovery_method=libvirt_metadata" is set in ceilometer.conf

After changing the value to "naive" it starts working

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

How reproducible:
Setup the env as per doc: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_openstack_platform/13/html/auto_scaling_for_instances/configuring_auto_scaling_for_compute_instances

Actual results:
Doesn't work with default value

Expected results:
Should work as expected

Additional info:
Here is the upstream bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/charm-ceilometer-agent/+bug/1749954

The state remains in "insufficient data"

I was able to reproduce this bug in the lab. Documentation changes have been proposed: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1899612

Comment 4 Matthias Runge 2021-07-06 06:16:14 UTC
This was targeted for osp13z14, but misses a build. The fix is proposed as documentation fix, I'm going to close this in favor of the documentation change.
