Implement hosts extension for service status and volume host actions

Registered by John Griffith on 2012-11-08

Currently Cinder has no service management, not even things like cinder-manage service list. I started looking at a service extension, but we should make this consistent with what Nova has and have a hosts extension.

This is an admin extension to the OpenStack API implementing methods similar to that which Nova offers. At the very least having a status report of Cinder services and what nodes they're running on would be very helpful.

This could be expanded to cover a number of things in the future as well, check iscsi targets? Verify connections?
