Hello, please help me I am testing autoscaling with heat and ceilometer .For the ceilometer alarm I would like to use the outputs of a shell script( like a function which return a number and the scale up/scale down will depends on this number according to ceilometer)

So how can I manage the communication betwen my shell script and ceilometer?

Why not just use the API directly or the Ceilometer CLI to modify alarms?
