I think devstack plugins currently doesn't setup the Ceilometer stuffs to
be able to use events in Aodh.

Note that Aodh doesn't query Panko, but listen for event on alarm.all topic by
default. I'm guessing the Ceilometer conf/pipeline have to be tweaked to send
events to Aodh somehow.

Maybe this [1] have to be done manually.
