Some of the Compute API calls return the status of a server ( instance ) for e.g.

{ status: "ACTIVE"}
{status : "SUSPENDED" }

What is the complete list of possible status and where are these documented ?

According to link text , There are vm_states, task_states, and power_states for each VM. See the link for more details.

From code perspective,you can see the below path for respective states. /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nova/compute/ /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nova/compute/ /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nova/compute/

I hope, you are looking for this info.

The links to code and the link text help to some extent. What is still not clear is But there are still some outstanding questions from a API / user perspective; more work is needed here. Example: API call returns four status in JSON representation: status, OS-EXT-STS:vm_state, OS-EXT-STS:power_state, OS-EXT-STS:task_state . While the meaning of vm_state, power_state and task_state can be derived from the link text that you posted, it is not clear what "status" refers to. Is it the same as OS-EXT-STS:vm_state or something else ?
