Thanks Shinobu. I still don’t understand how this resource will be managed as it is outside of openstack.

Yes, it's possible using inspectors.

I am trying to use ceilometer to monitor a physical switch/router connected to a compute node. Is it possible to achieve using ceilometer pollster?

If yes, I have few questions.

1. From where do I get the resource ID for the device. (Since router/switch is outside of OpenStack)
2. I am planning to get the credentials of the device from ml2/neutron conf. Will it be possible to read the conf from ceilometer service.
3. To create a new metric is it enough to create entry in /etc/ceilometer/pipeline.yaml?
