Hello I have 5 instance in my system. Can I create an alarm for just one specific instance?? For example if I have to create an alarm I will be using

usage: ceilometer alarm-create --name <NAME> [--project-id <PROJECT_ID>]
                               [--user-id <USER_ID>]
                               [--description <DESCRIPTION>] [--state <STATE>]
                               [--enabled {True|False}]
                               [--alarm-action <Webhook URL>]
                               [--ok-action <Webhook URL>]
                               [--insufficient-data-action <Webhook URL>]
                               [--repeat-actions {True|False}]
                               [--period <PERIOD>]
                               [--evaluation-periods <COUNT>] --meter-name
                               <METRIC> [--statistic <STATISTIC>]
                               [--comparison-operator <OPERATOR>] --threshold
                               [--matching-metadata <Matching Metadata>]

But I am not sure which of these attribute will specify the instance id??? Can anybody help me?

This page is very useful: (

An example of creating a threshold-oriented alarm, based on a upper bound on the CPU utilization for a particular instance: ceilometer alarm-threshold-create --name cpu_high --description 'instance running hot' \ --meter-name cpu_util --threshold 70.0 --comparison-operator gt --statistic avg \ --period 600 --evaluation-periods 3 \ --alarm-action 'log://' \ --query resource_id=INSTANCE_ID
