Description Attila Fazekas 2013-05-26 08:58:18 EDT
packstack does not able install and configure ceilometer

Comment 2 Eoghan Glynn 2013-06-05 06:40:14 EDT
There is a puppet module for ceilometer upstream in stackforge:


which could potentially provide a good starting point for packstack ceilometer support.

This puppet-ceilometer module was contributed by eNovance, who have apparently tested it extensively and proved it in the field with their customers.

However, their usage has been Ubuntu-centric, so we would need to contribute some changes upstream in order for this to be usable with packstack on Fedora/RHEL.

In particular, it supports only rabbitmq as the AMQP provider currently:


so this would need to optionally accept the qpid configuration parameters also, as do puppet modules for the other openstack projects:


Also, one other departure from the usual pattern of the puppet modules used by packstack (IIUC), is that the ceilometer compute agent has a direct cross-project dependency on the nova compute agent catalog entry:


(this change to the nova-compute's nova.config is required so that a special ceilometer notification driver is installed, in order to catch the dieing breath of a deleted instance)

Finally, eNovance targetted this work at Folsom initially, and there appear to be some throwbacks to Folsom-ness in the code, e.g. this setting of notification_driver=nova.openstack.common.notifier.rabbit_notifier as opposed to notification_driver=nova.openstack.common.notifier.rpc_notifier & rpc_backend=nova.openstack.common.rpc.impl_kombu:


However, overall, it looks like a decent enough starting point for packstack ceilometer support.
Comment 3 Ami Jeain 2013-07-31 05:36:46 EDT
will this be part og RHOS 4.0?
It is currently not blocking the Havana tracker bug
Comment 5 Martin Magr 2013-09-03 05:45:54 EDT
Taking over Ceilometer support.
Comment 8 Nir Magnezi 2013-10-15 05:27:39 EDT
Due to Bug #1015878, Ceilometer cannot tested for basic sanity.
Setting Bug #1015878 as a blocker for this bug.
Comment 10 Martin Magr 2013-10-22 04:15:09 EDT
Bug #1015878 is in MODIFIED state, please check installation with the appropriate version of openstack-ceilometer.

Verified NVR: openstack-packstack-2013.2.1-0.9.dev840.el6ost.noarch
Puddle 2013-11-08.1

Verification Steps:
1. Install OpenStack
2. Verify that 'ceilomter meter-list' works (for sanity)
3. Verified that there are no errors in Celimeter logs
4. Verified that all Ceilomter services are up
# for svc in api central collector compute ; do service openstack-ceilometer-$svc status ; done
openstack-ceilometer-api (pid  22755) is running...
openstack-ceilometer-central (pid  22725) is running...
openstack-ceilometer-collector (pid  22696) is running...
openstack-ceilometer-compute (pid  6091) is running...
