[openstack-dev] [ceilometer][horizon] The meaning of "Network Duration"

Hello Daisy,

the tables were deleted from Horizon, because of that confusion. 
We are going to clearly document each ceilometer meter first. Then this 
information will appear again in Horizon.

E.g. the duration as stated in doc 
is kind of misguiding, as it actually mean presence. So the samples of 
these metrics contains 1 or 0, depending
on whether network was up or down in that time. The actual duration then 
must be inferred from these samples.

This should be also backported to H.

Kind regards.
