I am trying to monitor certain metrics like say 'cpu_util' for a physical swithch/router connected to compute node using a ceilometer pollster. Will I be able to do this?

If Yes, since there should be a resource ID for each resource, what will be the resource ID for the switch/router?

This is to monitor the nodes right? I want to monitor a new metric value which is specific to a physical router. Should I add the metric and then write a module specific to that metric?
