I would like to know if Ceilometer can extract metric like uptime (when system is able to perform a tak) and downtime (when the system is not able to perform a task). a System can be a VM like uptime and downtime = MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) and MTTR (Mean Time To Repair).

I don't think that calculations on metrics are part of Celiometer's scope. For example, there's a gauge that indicates instance duration but does not calculate MTTR.

Refer to for the comprehensive list of measurements that Celiometer collects.
