[openstack-dev] [Ceilometer] Ceilometer-Alarm-Not Working

Hi all,

I am working with Ceilometer-Kilo on RHEL 7.0. Initially, ceilometer configuration installed four ceilometer services:

Everything is installed and working perfectly.

I created alarm at a resource by using this command: ceilometer -k alarm-threshold-create --name testercpuhigh --description 'overheating?' --meter-name cpuutil --threshold 3.0 --comparison-operator gt --statistic avg --period 10 --query resourceid=e0bbdad3-ebdb-4acd-8fb5-cd2e10bb10f4

but whenever I check the status of alarm, it shows me 'insufficient data' status.

I tested it by running different applications on my instance but they made no change in alarm_status.

Please tell me which step is missing or what exact procedure should be followed in order to monitor a meter for a resource.

Thank you!

Regards, Mark lynn

If your sampling interval is greater than period, it will lead to insufficient data.

Check the "interval" in /etc/ceilometer/pipeline.yaml.

- name: cpu_source
  interval: 5
      - "cpu"
      - cpu_sink

The "interval" above should be less than or equal to "period" in your alarm.

Thank you for reply. My interval is 60. And I put the period to 600 then also same problem occurs. Please revert back for this issue.

Did ceilometer fetch any samples? Could you take a look at the sample list of the meter you want to monitor?

Yes it is fetching samples from other components.

This is the sample of resource id | e2469be8-4b02-11e5-b7a2-0800271db522 | 060b5b1f-6dd8-4ec1-b95f-dd7c4328027b | cpu_util | gauge | 27.4666666667 | % | 2015-08-25T08:25:46 |
