Bug Description

For newton rc1, ceilometer switch to providing the ceilometer-api binary using the new pbr wsgi_script stanza; this new binary is not directly compatible with the CLI of the previous console script version.

The daemon fails to start as the only CLI options it recognises are -P port

Running ceilometer-api from the CLI:

and from the systemd service:

Currently we pass in --config-file and --log-file - the new binary does not support these options.

You can pass them by using --:

ceilometer-api -- --config-file=foobar

This change requires a pbr version > 1.8 (current in yakkety development). Upstream is aligned with 1.10.0 in upper-constraints.txt; we should bump to that revision.

As the majority of packages in the archive that depend on pbr are openstack things, this should be low risk, as we are simply aligning version of pbr with upstream openstack.

Sounds good, please go ahead.

Thanks Martin. We've uploaded a new version of python-pbr to yakkety and it's in the review queue.

ceilometer (1:7.0.0~rc2-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release candidate for OpenStack Newton.
    - d/p/bug1624873.patch: Drop, included in new RC.
  * Fix issues due to switch to wsgi_script for ceilometer-api (LP: #1626006):
    - d/control: Set minimum version of python-pbr to 1.10.0 to ensure
      that useful wsgi_scripts are generated for ceilometer-api.
    - d/ceilometer-api.{service,init}.in: Switch to direct use of systemd
      unit file instead of relying on openstack-pkg-tools for generation of
      templated versions to ensure that configuration options are passed
      correctly to wsgi_script generated ceilometer-api.
