Ussuri Series Release Notes


Bug Fixes

  • [bug 1940660] Fixes an issue with the Swift pollster where the [service_credentials] cafile option was not used. This could prevent communication with TLS-enabled Swift APIs.


New Features

  • Add dynamic pollster system. The dynamic pollster system enables operators to gather new metrics on the fly (without needing to code pollsters).

  • Add the support for non-OpenStack APIs in the dynamic pollster system. This extension enables operators to create pollster on the fly to handle metrics from systems such as the RadosGW API.

  • Include a publisher for the Monasca API. A monasca:// pipeline sink will send data to a Monasca instance, using credentials configured in ceilometer.conf. This functionality was previously available in the Ceilosca project (

Upgrade Notes

  • Python 2.7 support has been dropped. Last release of ceilometer to support py2.7 is OpenStack Train. The minimum version of Python now supported by ceilometer is Python 3.6.

Bug Fixes

  • [bug 1848286] Enable load balancer metrics by adding the loadbalancer resource type, allowing Gnocchi to capture measurement data for Octavia load balancers.
