Actually, you can run what you want. If you want to test pollsters for
nova you need to run ceilometer-agent-compute. You should see the
counter emitted on stdout, and emitted on the bus.
If you want to test more general pollster, run ceilometer-agent-central.

Note that you may have a problem today to launch agents, since
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/13224/ has not been merged yet.

If you want to test counter recording into a database, you need to run
ceilometer-collector also.

Finally if you want to test the API, just run ceilometer-api.
