Revision history [back]

collectd is not related to OpenStack. It collects performance metrics from the computer on which it runs.

Ceilometer is a framework for getting metrics from cloud resources like virtual machines, Neutron networks and Cinder volumes.

Perhaps collectd plugins could be written for this task, but obviously the developers of Ceilometer preferred creating their own solution.

If you ask what might replace Ceilometer, you should look into Prometheus.
