I have created the openstack setup with devstack. I have created the volumes and instances. When I am listing resources using ;

then I am getting only instnaces not volumes. Similarly I am not getting any meters.

I tried setting


in cinder.conf and restarting cinder-volume service and ceilometer-collector service.

Still I am not getting any volume related meters. Neither they are mentioned in resources.

In c-vol screen logs I can see below kind of logs when creating and deleting volumes.

You need to run cinder-volume-usage-audit and activate audit in cinder.conf

I'm also trying to get the volume metering working. I enabled the ceilometer service and modified the settings in the cinder.conf as below.

notification_driver=cinder.openstack.common.notifier.rpc_notifier control_exchange=cinder volume_usage_audit_period=hour

After above changes, restarted the c-vol and ceilometer-collector, still I'm not able to see the volumes listed as resources when I tried listing the resources. All I see is only nova instances listed. Am I still missing something here? Appreciate any help.

Thanks, Parash

I got it working by installing all required services for ceilometer, I think I had missed to install ceilometer-collector.

Thanks, Parash
