I have a requirement of metering Energy/Kwapi on OpenStack Icehouse using
ceilometer . I am using Ubuntu 14.04.

I am following the steps mentioned in

When I am trying to install kwapi with the ./setup.py install command I get
the following error.

root at ice14:~/kwapi-master# ./setup.py install

Couldn't find index page for 'pbr' (maybe misspelled?)

Icehouse uses pbr version pbr>=0.6,!=0.7,<1.0 and kwapi uses >=0.5,<0.6. I
have to move to >=0.5,<0.6 which is the common denominator.

Tried removing the pbr ubuntu package and installing a version of pbr
within 0.5 to 0.6 using pip and a lot of dependencies including OpenStack
Ubuntu packages for Ceilometer, Neutron and Nova gets removed in the
process. So this might not be a good way to go about.

Kindly let me know if there is any alternate way to get Ceilometer to meter
Energy/Kwapi in IceHouse.
