I have been studying about the evolution of gnocchi. In my understanding, (ref. ( )

  • Ceilometer legacy storage captures full resolution data. Each data point has a timestamp, measurements, ID's, resource metadata, metric metadata etc.
  • Gnocchi stores aggregated data in time series. Each data point is timestamp and measurement. Resource metadata is stored seperately and linked to measurement.

Seeing the advantages of using gnocchi, why do we not have this as the defualt database of ceilometer.

Thanks in advance.

I think it actually does, at least for Rocky. See the git repository.

It might be that the method you use to install Ceilometer configures a different pipeline.
