[openstack-dev] [Ceilometer] Looking for some help understanding default meters

Hey all,

I've been poking around to get an understanding of what some of these default meters mean in the course of researching this Glance bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ceilometer/+bug/1201701). I was wondering if anyone could explain to me what the instance meter is. The unit 'instance' sort of confuses me when each one of these meters is tied to a single resource (instance), especially because it looks like a count of all notifications regarding a particular instance that hit the bus. Here's some output for one of the instances I spun up: http://paste.openstack.org/show/42963/. Another concern I have is I think I may have found another bug, because I can delete the instance shown in this paste, and it still has a resource state description of 'scheduling' long after it's been deleted: http://paste.openstack.org/show/42962/, much like the Glance issue I'm currently working on.

I'm very new to this, so feel free to be verbose. =]

Thanks for your time!
