It’s been a while since I talked about Ceilometer and its companions, so I thought I’d go ahead and write a bit about what’s going on this side of OpenStack. I’m not going to cover new features and fancy stuff today, but rather a shallow overview of the new project processes we initiated. Ceilometer growing Ceilometer has grown a lot… Read more →
A few months ago, I wrote a long post about what I called back then the “Gnocchi experiment“. Time passed and we – me and the rest of the Gnocchi team – continued to work on that project, finalizing it. It’s with a great pleasure that we are going to release our first 1.0 version this month, roughly at the same time that… Read more →
On July 9th, 11am Eastern time, Eoghan Glynn will be leading a hangout in which he’ll discuss what’s coming in Ceilometer in the Juno release. You can register to attend (so you’ll get a reminder) and attend the actual event, at https://plus.google.com/events/c6e8vjjn8klrf78ruhkr95j4tas If the time isn’t convenient, you’ll be able to watch the archived video at that same location afterwards….

A few weeks ago was the OpenStack Design Summit in Atlanta, GA where we, developers, discussed and designed the new OpenStack release (Juno) coming up. I’ve been there mainly to discuss Ceilometer upcoming developments. The summit has been great. It was my third OpenStack design summit, and the first one not being a PTL, meaning it was a largely more… Read more →
The Ceilometer project was started in 2012 with one simple goal in mind: to provide an infrastructure to collect any information needed within all OpenStack projects so that rating engines could use this single point to transform events into bill items, which we tagged “metering“. As the project started to come to life, collecting an increasing number of metrics across… Read more →
Like AWS CloudFormation, Heat allows to create auto scaling stacks. In order to do this, some metrics need to be retrieved from your VM and some actions need to be triggered when a specified event occurs on these metrics. These actions are usually upscaling (create some new VMs) or downscaling (destroy some VMs). In OpenStack Grizzly, a simplistic system was… Read more →
Our friends in Inktank recently added a new page to the wiki documenting the process for enabling Ceph for block storage on RDO. This has been a popular request from RDO users in addition to the documentation and support for Gluster as a storage back-end. Let us know how it works!
Introduction “G” release is the next stable version of OpenStack which is going to be released the 4th April 2013. For remind us, Folsom brought us two new core projects : Quantum (Networking) and Cinder (Volumes). Two new projects have been incubated : Ceilometer (metering) led by Nicolas Barcet (VP Products at eNovance), and Heat (Cloud Orchestration). Oslo is a… Read more →
