Hi there,

ceilometer turned to be a collecting agent a long time ago. Metrics and 
events are stored in other databases, such as gnocchi, prometheus or 
The ceilometer API was split into a separate project named gnocchi, 
chances are good that you can use your code on gnocchi API.
There is also a plugin[1] for grafana to pull data from gnocchi.
