This project aims to become the infrastructure to collect measurements within OpenStack so that no two agents would need to be written to collect the same data. Its primary targets are monitoring and metering, but the framework should be easily expandable to collect for other needs. To that effect, Ceilometer should be able to share collected data with a variety of consumers.

Ceilometer aims to deliver a unique point of contact for billing systems to acquire all counters they need to establish customer billing, across all current and future OpenStack components. The delivery of counters must be traceable and auditable. The counters must be easily extensible to support new projects, and agents doing data collections should be independent of the overall system.

(A ceilometer is an instrument that measures cloud coverage.)
