Shovel is an application that provides a service with a set of APIs that wraps around RackHD/Ironic existing APIs allowing users to find Baremetal Compute nodes dynamically discovered by RackHD and register/unregister them with Ironic (OpenStack Bare Metal Provisioning Program).Shovel also provides poller service that monitors compute nodes and logs the errors from SEL into Ironic Database.
A Shovel Horizon plugin is also provided to interface with the Shovel service. The plugin adds a new Panel to the admin Dashboard called rackhd that displays a table of all the Baremetal systems discovered by RackHD. It also allows the user to see the node catalog in a nice table View, Register/Unregister node in Ironic, display node SEL and enable/register a failover node.
- Use RackHD: Quick Setup to install RackHD.
