The ceilometer module is part of Stackforge, an effort by the OpenStack infrastructure team to provice continuous integration testing and code review for OpenStack and OpenStack community projects not part of the core software. The module itself is used to flexibly configure and manage the metering service for OpenStack.

Module Description

The ceilometer module is an attempt to make Puppet capable of managing the entirety of ceilometer. This includes manifests to provision the ceilometer api, agents, and database stores. A ceilometer_config type is supplied to assist in the manipulation of configuration files.
