Currently it is possible to create an unlimited number of alarms in ceilometer. It would be useful to be able to specify a maximum number of alarms allowed per user, project or domain in order to have some control and restraint on the computing power required by ceilometer.

These limits, if enforced, could be specified in ceilometer's configuration file. These limits would be expressed as the maximum number of alarms that can be set for a given user, project and domain. No value in the conf file would mean no limit.

When a user adds an alarm, the following checks would occur:

1. Has the user filled his alarms quota ? If yes, the query is rejected.
2. Is the user's project's alarms quota filled ? If yes, the query is rejected.
3. Is the user's domain's alarms quota filled ? If yes, the query is rejected.
4. Add the alarm.

Quotas don't have to be set at every level. For example, setting a limit only at the project level will allow users to create as many alarms as they want as long as the sum of alarms for their specific tenant is less than the limit.
