Instance metadata


I am new to OpenStack, and while doing some research came across a question stating "how to set metadata on an instance?".

I have googled but have not yet found any solid explanation on what exactly is VM metadata comprised of, why is it important and how to use it in an OpenStack environment?

Any help on the topic would be greatly appreciated.
