In Ceilometer there is the possibility to add custom meters ( ) but from the above link it is not clear how to add them. Are there some CLI commands in ceilometer or is it possible via REST API?

There is the possibility to add custom metrics in Ceilometer for the vCenter counters that are not mapped? This requires some modifications in vCenter driver?

Thanks in advance

I would also like to know how to do this. The documentation around this is very vague. I found this, but I need a little more. Can someone tell me how I can specifically add a custom meter to ceilometer?

Hi, I got some info about add meter in wiki: ( In meter definition section, it says that: The Telemetry service collects a subset of the meters by filtering notifications emitted by other OpenStack services. Starting with the Liberty release, you can find the meter definitions in a separate configuration file, called ceilometer/meter/data/meter.yaml. This enables operators/administrators to add new meters to Telemetry project by updating the meter.yaml file without any need for additional code changes. Wish this can give some help
