Hardware introspection for OpenStack Bare Metal

Hardware introspection for OpenStack Bare Metal



This is an auxiliary service for discovering hardware properties for a node managed by Ironic. Hardware introspection or hardware properties discovery is a process of getting hardware parameters required for scheduling from a bare metal node, given its power management credentials (e.g. IPMI address, user name and password).


ironic-inspector was called ironic-discoverd before version 2.0.0.
