The Ceilometer project was started 6 months ago on the realisation that all public cloud provider wanting to use OpenStack would need to rewrite exactly the same code to properly meter the use of their infrastructure.  Ceilometer stated goal is not to provide a full billing solution.  It deliberately limits itself to the first phase: collecting the information needed to establish billing lines. 

The project description states:

"Ceilometer aims to deliver a unique point of contact for billing systems to aquire all counters they need to establish customer billing, accross all current and future OpenStack components. The delivery of counters must be tracable and auditable, the counters must be easily extensible to support new projects, and agents doing data collections should be independent of the overall system."

A first version of Ceilometer will be released in parallel to Folsom's release, and the project has been submited as an incubation project in OpenStack.

This session aims at providing an overview of what the project offers today, how to deploy it and how it can be connected to rating and billing engines.
