I need help on setting ceilometer to get events.

nova.conf has been configured ( instance_usage_audit = True) but still event-list returns an empty list. Is there any one who made it working events for devstack environment.

event_definitions.yaml has - event_type: compute.instance.* which clearly says that whenever instance has been created, it should generate an event and ceilometer event-list should return those events. But it returns an empty list.

hard code the store_events=True in notification.py is one way, however the recommended way is to set this flag in ceilometer.conf directly. eg:


then restart ceilometer services to make this configuration work.

Hope that helps!

I got the events by setting up store_events flag as "True" in notification.py

Guys, I do have the same problem. I am getting meters but not getting the events.

I added store_events = True in ceilometer.conf . This didn't solved my issue.

Have you guys know what might be the problem.

Thanks in advance.
