When a tenant gets deleted often some resources are left behind. Is there an easy way to find these resources (eg. networks) and delete them?

For each class of resources (nova instances, neutron networks, neutron security groups, glance images, ceilometer alarms, etc, etc), you would need to iterate through the available resources, get the tenant id associated with each one, and then check if that tenant id was still valid.

There appear to be several attempts out there to solve this problem:
