Bug Description

When installing the compute-agent on a hypervisor generaly we didn't need to sync db from it.
DB is usually installed on an anther server

furthermore, for each installation of compute-agent (on compute nodes), dbsync is fired which is too much and useless.
and if there are no db accessible the installation failed.

the ceilometer-dbsync come with ceilometer-common which is a dependance of ceilometer-agent-compute.

A better place to do the dbsync would be with the installation of the collector IMHO

After some further discussion on irc downgrading this to wishlist; yes its inefficient but does not cause direct issues.
