There are multiple methods to achieve this.

  • Firstly through Horizon GUI if you click on specific instance it will show all the details of that instance.
  • Second is through nova client. You can use nova show <instnace-id> to get details for that instance
  • Third is through Python nova client

    from novaclient.client import Client
    nova = Client('1.1', 'username', 'password', 'tenant', 'http://auth_ip:5000/v2.0')
    # Get a list of servers
    # Get details of specific servers
  • Then other way is through Nova compute API. This provides you with API that will fetch server details. Also mentioning it here.


You can also check the API response through any REST based client from borwser like for example Postman.

Hope that helps !!
