(You didn't Cc the list, not sure if it was on purpose. I'm not adding it back to not break any confidentiality, but feel free to do so.)

Sorry that was just a mistake.

My idea was just about providing the possibility to configure the data collection in Ceilometer differently for the different tenants, I didn't mean to link it to an API or at least not on the first place. It could be done by the operator as well, for instance, if the polling frequency should be different in case of tenants.
