So, I added a custom metric to ceilometer with api V2 as documentation describes.

Get a token:

curl -i -X POST http://controller:35357/v2.0/tokens -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "User-Agent: python-keystoneclient" -d '{"auth": {"tenantName": "test", "passwordCredentials": {"username": "admin", "password": "password"}}}'  ;

Take token:

mysql -e 'use keystone; select id from token;' | tail -n 1

Add custom metric with data:

curl -X POST -H 'X-Auth-Token: TOKEN' -H 'Content-Type: application/json'   -d '[{"counter_name": "test","user_id": "admin_user_id","resource_id": "Virtual_machine_ID","resource_metadata": {"display_name": "my_test","my_custom_metadata_1": "value1","my_custom_metadata_2": "value2"},"counter_unit": "%","counter_volume": 10.57762938230384,"project_id": "VM_tenant_ID","counter_type": "gauge"}]'  http://controller:8777/v2/meters/test

I can see anything about this metric via consol comands, comands like:

> ceilometer sample-list -m test

> ceilometer meter-list |grep test

> ceilometer statistics -m test

But can't see my new metric in dashboard, can anybody tell me why? And what's wrong?

Somebody knows how to add the custom metric in ceilometer and make it visible in dashboard? For example using API?

I have try but have a fail. It is visible via different comands but not visible in dasboard. Anybody can tell me why? And how fix that problem?

I have the same problem did you find solutions to add custom metrics to ceilometer?

Hello, Even i have the same issue. Can we integrate any other 3PV gui with Ceilometer backend ?
