Using OpenStack Telemetry to interrogate usage statistics

With the telemetry modules installed and configured, we can now use the Ceilometer command line to interrogate resource usage statistics. We do this by retrieving meters that were set up for our environment and in listing the data.

Getting ready

Ensure that you are logged into a Ubuntu host that has access to our OpenStack environment on the public network. This host will be used to run client tools against the OpenStack environment created.

This has the python-ceilometer package that provides the ceilometer command-line client.

If you created this node with Vagrant, you can execute the following command:

vagrant ssh controller
