Bug Fixes and Improvements

Upgrade Notes

Deprecated Ceilometer-API

Starting with this Platform9 release, the deprecated ceilometer-api is disabled in favor of using equivalent APIs provided by Gnocchi, Aodh and Panko services for metrics, alarms and events respectively. With this change, any references to native ceilometer metrics should be dropped from Aodh alarms and Heat stack templates. You should transition to using Gnocchi-based alarms for autoscaling feature.

wget -q -O - https://platform9-neutron.s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/ubuntu_latest/key.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
