no volume.exists in ceilometer

I'm trying to retrieve volume information for a given period in Ceilometer. I'm testing on devstack with the stable/kilo branch.

Ceilometer receives volume.create/volume.delete events, along with volume detail ('volume' and 'volume.size' meters). My problem is that I don't receive information about the current existence of a volume. The doc states that a 'volume.exists' event/meter should exist, but it is not the case.

Any clue about what could be missing? Thanks.

have you added below settings in cinder.conf ?





Then you can either run manually Or set a cronjob for "cinder-volume-usage-audit" ref link

also check if there is cinder time mismatch as reported here

I've configured cinder.conf with your recommended settings in mitaka, this is the only report that I see when running cinder_volume_usage_audit:

Option "verbose" from group "DEFAULT" is deprecated for removal. Its value may be silently ignored in the future. /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oslo_db/sqlalchemy/ NotSupportedWarning: Configuration option(s) ['use_tpool'] not supported exception.NotSupportedWarning

Hi, Changing the driver to messaging helped me.

Can you tell me what is the difference between messaging and messagingv3 and what other driver options are available?

And why a deprecated driver listed is in cinder.conf?
