The Ceilometer project is a core OpenStack service that provide collection of metering data on managed virtual resources (e.g. compute, storage, networking). Before it was only possible to collect data from OpenStack virtual resources which are running upon an OpenStack deployment. The work presented hereafter addresses this issue outlines a means to monitor both virtual and physical resources in an integrated common approach. This work has been appearsd in the upcoming OpenStack release named “Icehouse”.
From “Icehouse” release on Openstack has been added monitoring physical devices. At this moment available only one inspector – SNMP Inspector. IPMI Inspector will be add soon.
