Hi,

I run an application which performs intensive disk i/o. Now, I want to check how much disk i/o occured during a certain period of time. I can use a tool like dstat, collectd or even ganglia for clusters. I know, but, that Openstack already has the right tool for it; ceilometer.

Openstack admin can directly query those information on a certain instance, but it's not possible within the VM instance which has no idea about where to send query and what is his instance ID.

Is there a way that I can achieve this?

@syko, what exactly U want to achieve? Could you please add more details.

Right now ceilometer does not provide ability to monitor applications running inside guest vms.

I added more details. I don't need to monitor a certain application, but need to monitor an instance itselt.

@syko - Based on update info - if U can access OpenStack endpoints from within your vm -than all U have to do is to install ceilometerclient on your vm and create correct keystonerc file. (Assuming ceilometer already configured to monitor needed info)

Otherwise - sar/iostat should help U
