Tracking Resources

The placement service enables other projects to track their own resources. Those projects can register/delete their own resources to/from placement via the placement REST API.

The nova resource tracker is responsible for creating the resource provider record corresponding to the compute host on which the resource tracker runs. If other projects – for example, Neutron or Cyborg – wish to manage resources on a compute host, they should create resource providers as children of the compute host provider and register their own managed resources as inventory on those child providers. For more information, see the Modeling with Provider Trees.
