How the nova client works

The nova client is an open-source Python client that lets you run commands to make Nova-Network API calls. The client is easy to learn and use. Each client command runs cURL commands that embed API requests. You can run the client from a desktop computer or remote system, such as a cloud server.

You can use the nova client to perform the following operations:

  1. Boot a server with isolated networks and ports.

  2. Attach and detach networks from servers (if the Cloud Networks extension is installed).

To install the nova client on a Linux distribution or on Mac OS X, see Install the nova Client with the Cloud Networks Extension in the Next Generation Cloud Servers Getting Started Guide.
