to followup, in Ceilometer, we capture data in two different models: 
Meters and Events[1]. Meters are designed for numeric, measurement data 
such as: cpu time, cpu_util, incoming.bytes, etc... Events are a more 
generic model which represent the state of a resource. historically, we 
never had Events so we captured non-measurement data (see Neutron 
'meters') as Meters. going forward, consumers should enable store_events 
(if not already) to capture non-measurement data as Events. Events offer 
better granularity and are more query-able.
