This plugin monitors, visualizes, and alerts on your OpenStack environment in one-second intervals.This plugin grabs metrics from the OpenStack node where it is started and parses the data to be able to integrate into TrueSight Intelligence. To be able to start, ceilometer should be well configured on the machine and credentials needs to be created. Additional metrics can be added from the ceilometer by editing the plugin.py and adding or replacing different mapping tuple objects.
Meter version 4.2 or later must be installed.
Ceilometer 2.3.0 or later must be installed.
The NGINX plugin (version Mitaka) supports the following Operating System.
For CentOS 7.x & RHEL 7.x and Ubuntu v14.04(trusty)
To get ceilometer configuration such as host name and port number, open the configuration file.
