Hi all,

I am using ceilometer with kwapi to get the energy measurements from our servers and currently we have created a script to insert this samples from the api, I would like to know how I make ceilometer collect this data from the api without create any script and how ceilometer collect the samples.

So you want put new custom metrics to ceilometer and watch for them via dasboard? Is it correct?

@9lives in my case it is in mongo but not visible via dasboard. Maybe you have some info about this?

Hello guys,

Regarding how ceilometer collects the data from kwapi there is a post explaining all the necessary steps. Also there is a brief explanation of how to set the meters which ceilometer will collect the data (through the pipeline file).

Hope have been of great help.

Regards, Bruno.
