I want to add a plugin to nova so that when a new VM is created (not the start of process, but when it is actually created and goes online). I think the right way for this would be to have a nova plugin of some sort.

I read up and saw there is a way to use the hooks added in the nova. (

But there are very little details on how to add the functions using the hooks and what should be the organisation. Is there some documentation/tutorial on how to add these custom functions?

Or is there a different place that I should be adding the plugin to?

I think you should go on IRC and chat on #openstack-101 first because the question is too generic and can only be answered by a detailed tutorial, which is out of scope for this site.
