I'm seeing this too and it looks like an authentication issue.
I created a Nova user called "admin" and a project called "demo".
It looks like Horizon is doing GET /v1/extras/usage on Nova (port 8774)
and getting a 401
Nova is hitting up keystone in order to authenticate the request, by
doing a GET /v2.0/tokens/XXXXXXXX on port 35357 where XXXXXX is the
authentication token Horizon supplied to Nova
Now, this is the keystone auth_token.py middleware which the Nova
process is using to do this request back to keystone. It sets the
X-Auth-Token header to whatever you put into Nova's api-paste.ini for
So, I'm not sure yet why the authentication is failing for me.
Alan is doing experimenting with keystone and nova at the moment - can
you help us out?
