Please be patient as I started learning openstack a week ago.

I was following along with open stack docs for installing it in VMs, but when I reached this check for ceilometer (

I got the following result after running "ceilometer meter-list" for the second time:


| Name           | Type  | Unit  |


| image          | gauge | image |

| | delta | B     |

| image.serve    | delta | B     |

| image.size     | gauge | B     |


The image.update and image.upload lines are missing. What does those lines means? They are not showing up because I gone through glance docs without having ceilometer up and running? How can I update or upload an image to have these lines showing up.

the telemetry and image service are working fine according to your description.

you don't see the image.update and image.upload meters is because this doc is some kind of out dated. I've already create a bug( for it and uploaded a patch to fix it.

the meters: image.upload, image.update are already marked as not recommended, so they are not enabled by default in liberty branch, if you do want them, try to set [notification]disable_non_metric_meters = False in /etc/ceilometer/ceilometer.conf and restart the ceilometer-agent-notification service, then after another glance image update or upload, they will come up in ceilometer meter-list
