[Openstack-operators] meta-data values stored in ??

I think that accessing the in-memory cache depends on if your deployment is
configured to use memcache or not (this is the memcached_servers config
option). By default, I think nova-api just uses an in-process cache, so you
wouldn't be able to easily access it.

However, the nova-api service is just caching content from the database, so
if you can make queries against your database backend, you can get access
to the metadata.

Take care,
