OpenStack uses libvirt and libvirt's documentation says: libvirt supports Hyper-V as well as ESX. Nova does support the above mentioned hypervisors. Unfortunately some components of OpenStack like ceilometer have no support for Hyper-V and ESX. What are the plans for adding support to other hypervisors in Ceilometer?

In Grizzly (when this question was originally asked) Ceilometer did not support ESX nor Hyper-V, a blueprint for Hyper-V support was actioned in the Havana release:

I was not able to find a similar proposal for ESX support at this time.

Hi, support for Hyper-V has been included in Havana.

Both those hypervisors are supported by OpenStack Compute (Nova).

The key to the question is which hypervisors are supported by ceilometer, as far as I can work out it doesn't support either of them at the moment.

@sgordon: thanks for clarifying it. I'm not sure what the situation for Ceilometer is.

It is interesting to know whether modifying some python files would make it portable to ESX(or Hyper-V). Is that feasible?

@Jobin: Ceilometer accepts contributions in code, like all OpenStack projects. If you're interested in picking up an existing blueprint or write a new one start from this wiki page
