There is a built in tab in horizon if you have installed juno release with ceilometer enabled using devstack, the UI component for ceilometer is called "Resource Usage" under the Admin Tab, you can only access this UI via user who has admin role.

If you want to develop your own ceilometer UI plugin, this link might be what you are looking at.

Hope that helps!

As said above Resource Usage Tab is place holder for all the ceilometer related stuff. Current it has two tabs and you can always add as many as you want by making relative changes in the horizon code for admin user and get the required info from ceilometer as it is doing in the current two tabs.

Place holder to make changes for horizon is: /opt/stack/horizon/openstack_dashboard/dashboards/admin/metering

When you understand the current flow in that part, you will get to know on how to add new tabs.

Yes the openstack dashboard can be customized. The path to place your folders will be /opt/stack/horizon/openstack-dashboard/dashboards/admin/name_of_your_folder.
