“nova-novncproxy” daemon

The “nova-novncproxy” daemon is a component of OpenStack, an open-source cloud computing platform. It is responsible for providing a web-based console interface to access virtual machines (VMs) running on an OpenStack compute service called Nova.

The “nova-novncproxy” daemon acts as a proxy server between the user’s web browser and the VM’s graphical console. It enables users to interact with their VMs using a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) client embedded in a web browser, without requiring any additional software installation on the client side.

By running the “nova-novncproxy” daemon, OpenStack users can access their VMs remotely, view their graphical console output, and perform tasks such as installing operating systems, configuring applications, or troubleshooting issues.
