Hi Stackers:

As for now, we can get the 'host name', 'service' and 'availability
zone' of a host through the CLI command 'nova host-list'. But as a
programmer who communicates with OpenStack using its API, I want to
get the host ip address, in order to perform some other actions in my

And what I know is, the ip address of a host is populated in the
'compute_nodes' table of the database, during the 'update available
resource' periodic task.

So, is it possible of the community to support it in the future?

I apologize if the topic was once covered and I missed it.
