Installing development sandbox

In a development environment created by devstack, Ceilometer can be tested alongside other OpenStack services.

Configuring devstack

  1. Download devstack.

  2. Create a local.conf file as input to devstack.

  3. The ceilometer services are not enabled by default, so they must be enabled in local.conf but adding the following:

    # Enable the Ceilometer devstack plugin
    enable_plugin ceilometer

    By default, all ceilometer services except for ceilometer-ipmi agent will be enabled

  4. Enable Gnocchi storage support by including the following in local.conf:


    Optionally, services which extend Ceilometer can be enabled:

    enable_plugin aodh

    These plugins should be added before ceilometer.

  5. ./
