how to write a new ceilometer plugin

I have to collect new informations and mesures which ceilometer don't manage, for example informations about vNIC of VM in a compute node, network informations about my OpenvSwitch, and all informations of my Host's NIC (rx, tx, errors, ...), do i have only to use the Hypervisor KVM of my compute Node to collect those information, or i have to develop new plugin (for example in my host compute node, to collect informations about physical ethernetcads), or to develop a new 3rd party plugins in my instances?

thank you for hleps
