I am not getting disk.root.size meter notifications from nova to ceilometer. I am getting all ther pollster meters but not notification meters.

Do I need to add any cron job like cinder to get notifications?

I am using devstack and below are the contents of my nova.conf.

firewall_driver = nova.virt.libvirt.firewall.IptablesFirewallDriver
compute_driver = libvirt.LibvirtDriver
flat_interface = eth0
flat_network_bridge = br100
vlan_interface = eth0
public_interface = br100
network_manager =
glance_api_servers =
rabbit_password = freebsd
rabbit_host = localhost
rpc_backend = nova.openstack.common.rpc.impl_kombu
ec2_dmz_host =
vncserver_proxyclient_address =
vncserver_listen =
vnc_enabled = true
xvpvncproxy_base_url =
novncproxy_base_url =
notification_driver = nova.openstack.common.notifier.rpc_notifier,ceilometer.compute.nova_notifier
instance_usage_audit_period = hour
instance_usage_audit = True
logging_context_format_string = %(asctime)s.%(msecs)03d %(levelname)s %(name)s %(request_id)s %(user_name)s %(project_name)s] %(instance)s%(message)s
use_syslog = True
instances_path = /opt/stack/data/nova/instances
lock_path = /opt/stack/data/nova
state_path = /opt/stack/data/nova
volume_api_class = nova.volume.cinder.API

instance_name_template = instance-%08x
libvirt_cpu_mode = none
libvirt_type = qemu
sql_connection = mysql://root:freebsd@localhost/nova?charset=utf8
my_ip =
osapi_compute_extension = nova.api.openstack.compute.contrib.standard_extensions

Which versions of ceilometer/nova are you using?

Are all of the ceilometer services running on your controller node? In our environment, openstack-agent-collector and openstack-collector were both dead and simply needed to be restarted.

If all the services are running, then the next thing I would try is to modify

rpc_backend = nova.openstack.common.rpc.impl_kombu


rpc_backend = rabbit

Tried this based on comments in the file and for us this resolved that issue.
