[openstack-dev] Gnocchi

Hello Julien,

Sorry for the late reply.

We uninstalled Gnocchi, because we tried to follow the latest update on OpenStack Newton which includes Ceilometer with MongoDB and Alarming with MySQL.

Ceilometer now works, but only the commands which do not include Alarming give the correct output, for example "ceilometer meter-list", "ceilometer resource-list" etc.

 The Alarming service doesn't work at this point. For example the command "ceilometer alarm-list" gives the error:

HTTPConnectionPool(host='controller', port=8042): Max retries exceeded with url: /v2/alarms (Caused by NewConnectionError('<requests.packages.urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x7f1f51b90350>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 111] Connection refused',))

Now our biggest concern is that the Alarming service database (MySQL-based) and the Telemetry service database (MongoDB) are not communicating properly. Is it possible for the Aodh to access the data from mongoDB?

Additionally aodh-dbsync gives error, because it cannot detect the module gnocchiclient. There aren't gnocchi modules involved in this version.

What kind of configuration needs to be done in order for Telemetry and Alarming to work properly?

Best regards,

It looks like you set your Swift URL to a Keystone URL something like
that. Could you join your gnocchi.conf file?

Knowing that collectd is a daemon that collects system and applications metrics and that Gnocchi is a scalable timeseries database, it sounds like a good idea to ...
