Description Eoghan Glynn 2013-06-13 05:23:07 EDT
Description of problem:

The default storage driver for ceilometer is mongoDB - this will be used in RHOS 3.0 as the alternative sqlalchemy-based driver is not yet considered production-ready.

However /usr/share/ceilometer/ceilometer-dist.conf contains a default setting for the sql_connection config option, which is only relevant to the sqlalchemy driver.

This is unused and could be confusing for users, as it seems to imply that mysql is used to store metering data. 

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
grep -c sql_connection /usr/share/ceilometer/ceilometer-dist.conf

Actual results:
