I'm trying to add more information to samples collected by OpenStack. I know for events I can modify the event_definition.yaml file but for notifications I'm not quite sure how to do it.

Let's say for example I've got two different interfaces on a VM, and I want to see the bandwidth consumption of each one, how should I do it? I've been trying to correlate the information stored in the metrics, but I cannot really find a way to correlate them, as I'm missing some information in the samples collected by ceilometer.

You can create your own meters, derived from existing meters. Instructions.

But the traffic per interface should be built-in. See meter list.
