i want to get sensor data from nodes, followed this to configure ironic settings - (

Now, what should i do (any command) to get these sensor details via openstack or ironic?

Ironic sends sensor data to Ceilometer, the OpenStack component that acquires all sorts of metrics. See

Ceilometer stores data in another component, Gnocchi, by default. You need to learn how to use Gnocchi.

Confusingly, Gnocchi is not a part of OpenStack, although it started as one. See and plan some time for the required learning curve.

You can also configure Ceilometer to send metrics to other storage or processing services. See config file pipeline.yaml.
