compute service

Compute v2

compute service delete

Delete compute service(s)

openstack compute service delete <service> [<service> ...]

Compute service(s) to delete (ID only). If using --os-compute-api-version 2.53 or greater, the ID is a UUID which can be retrieved by listing compute services using the same 2.53+ microversion. If deleting a compute service, be sure to stop the actual compute process on the physical host before deleting the service with this command. Failing to do so can lead to the running service re-creating orphaned compute_nodes table records in the database.

compute service list

List compute services. Using --os-compute-api-version 2.53 or greater will return the ID as a UUID value which can be used to uniquely identify the service in a multi-cell deployment.

openstack compute service list
    [--sort-column SORT_COLUMN]
    [--sort-ascending | --sort-descending]
    [--host <host>]
    [--service <service>]
--sort-column SORT_COLUMN

specify the column(s) to sort the data (columns specified first have a priority, non-existing columns are ignored), can be repeated


sort the column(s) in ascending order


sort the column(s) in descending order

--host <host>

List services on specified host (name only)

--service <service>

List only specified service binaries (name only). For example, nova-compute, nova-conductor, etc.


List additional fields in output

compute service set

Set compute service properties

openstack compute service set
    [--enable | --disable]
    [--disable-reason <reason>]
    [--up | --down]

Enable service


Disable service

--disable-reason <reason>

Reason for disabling the service (in quotes). Should be used with –disable option.


Force up service. Requires --os-compute-api-version 2.11 or greater.


Force down service. Requires --os-compute-api-version 2.11 or greater.


Name of host


Name of service (Binary name), for example nova-compute
