Documentation Status

cloudkitty

Rating as a Service component

Goal

CloudKitty aims at filling the gap between metrics collection systems like ceilometer and a billing system.

Every metrics are collected, aggregated and processed through different rating modules. You can then query CloudKitty's storage to retrieve processed data and easily generate reports.

Most parts of CloudKitty are modular so you can easily extend the base code to address your particular use case.

You can find more information on its architecture in the documentation, architecture section.

Status

CloudKitty has been successfully deployed in production on different OpenStack systems.

You can find the latest documentation on readthedocs.
