The ceilometer module is part of OpenStack, an effort by the OpenStack infrastructure team to provice continuous integration testing and code review for OpenStack and OpenStack community projects as 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.


What the ceilometer module affects

Installing ceilometer

puppet module install openstack/ceilometer

Beginning with ceilometer

To utilize the ceilometer module's functionality you will need to declare multiple resources. The following is a modified excerpt from the [openstack module](httpd:// -openstack). This is not an exhaustive list of all the components needed. We recommend that you consult and under stand the openstack module and the [core](http://d documentation to assist you in understanding the available deployment options.

class { '::ceilometer':
  metering_secret     => 'secrete',
  rabbit_userid       => 'ceilometer',
  rabbit_password     => 'an_even_bigger_secret',
  rabbit_host         => '',
class { '::ceilometer::client': }
class { '::ceilometer::collector': }
class { '::ceilometer::expirer': }
class { '::ceilometer::alarm::evaluator': }
class { '::ceilometer::alarm::notifier': }
class { '::ceilometer::agent::central': }
class { '::ceilometer::agent::notification': }
class { '::ceilometer::api':
  enabled               => true,
  keystone_password     => 'a_big_secret',
  keystone_identity_uri => '',



ceilometer is a combination of Puppet manifests and Ruby code to deliver configuration and extra functionality through types and providers.


  • The ceilometer modules have only been tested on RedHat and Ubuntu family systems.
