... yes, Ceilometer can easily handle your events and meters and store 
them in either Elasticsearch or Gnocchi for visualisations. you just 
need to create a new definition in our mapping files[1][2]. you will 
definitely want to coordinate the naming of your messages. ie. 
event_type == backup.<ekko_scope> and event_type == backup.<freezer_scope>.
