physical machine that runs the server

asked 2011-07-05 14:09:46 -0500

Is it possible to know which physical machine does a certain server is running on ?

OS API includes a call to get server details, In the returned details there's a 'hostID', what is this ? Can I use it to know which physical machine the server is running on ?

Ok, I can see in the source code that "hostId", is actually a hashed version of the 'hostname' of the physical machine that the server is running on.

I guess that will do.
