ceilometer-acentral.log keeps giving me this error.

ERROR ceilometer.hardware.discovery [req-48f8d9fd-2a35-4b24-9b71-f6be9cc691bd admin - - - -] Couldn't obtain IP address of instance fa90fd3b-47f1-4d78-99be-f63d2c3ac1be

Any idea how to resolve this? I am running Openstack from devstack

The idea of hardware* pollsters is to get data via snmp, and 'discovery' module expects vms to be on the 'ctlplane' network. This will work when U have an undercloud and overcloud installed. To get rid of this message, if U're using default pipeline.yaml - disable hardware* pollsters. If U need them - manually configure pipeline.yaml with credentials/hosts|ips

So how would I disable hardware pollsters? I'm seeing no reference to them in my pipeline.yaml

@j-rosenboom, most likely U have a wildcard entry *. if so, update that section to look like:

- source: meters
    - '!hardware.*'

And restart ceilometer* services

Thanks, that seems to do the trick, great!
