VM status is active even when the compute host has been shutdown


The VM Status are still in active state even when the compute host is shutdown. I underdtand the following - Nova cannot update the status of the VMs running on it until the nova-compute service is available again. Therefore, a VM can appear as ACTIVE for Nova even if the compute is down and the VM is in fact unavailable.

Is this is the official understanding under Openstack, if so could someone point me to some documentation for the same.

Note: running Mitaka.
