Hi All, I am trying to setup a multi host set up using devstack stein enabling few services in local.conf. I am trying to add Ceilometer services in both controller and compute nodes local.conf file. However I am not sure which ceilometer services are to be enabled for controller and which are meant for compute nodes.

Please let me know your suggestions and pointers on this.

thank you for your helps.

Thanks Shaoman for your reply. To install ceilometer in devstack, do I have to enable services like - ceilometer-agent-notification and ceilometer-agent-central for controller and ceilometer-agent-compute and ceilometer-agent-ipmi for compute in devstack's local.conf file?Gnocchi is auto-installed?

  1. When you used devstack to install ceilometer, services will be enabled by default except ceilometer-ipmi.
  2. If set gnocchi as ceilometer backend, gnocchi will be auto installed.

Yes, mongo is no longer supported, you can only use gnocchi in stein.
