your feedback would be appreciated. the basic idea is to gather floating 
ip data from neutron rather than nova.

Ceilometer floatingip pollster currently polls the nova api to get the 
floating ip info periodically. But due to limitations in the nova api as 
listed in this bug[1],Â
the data ceilometer receives isn't all that useful. Nova doesn't return 
this info for all tenants. There has been some work in juno time frame 
but it wasÂ
reverted due to the fact that the nova api logs were being spammed [2].Â

Due to these concerns, the proposal now is to use the neutron api to get 
this data as proposed in this patch[3]. What we would like to know is,

1. Is the data gathered from current floating ip pollster being used? if 
so how and what context ?

2. This might only be an issue for pure nova-network scenario, but even 
that i'm not sure how useful the current data we gather is?

3. Are there any other concerns regarding this change that we should 

Any feedback appreciated,

~ Pradeep
