Viewing Cloud Usage Statistics

The Telemetry service provides user-level usage data for Metapod-based clouds, which can be used for customer billing, system monitoring, or alerts. Data can be collected by notifications sent by existing Metapod components (for example, usage events emitted from Compute) or by polling the infrastructure (for example, libvirt).


You can only view metering statistics on the dashboard (available only to administrators). The Telemetry service must be set up and administered through the ceilometer command-line interface (CLI).

For basic administration information, see Measuring Cloud Resources.
