VM already deployed could have extra properties added and updated afterwards.

For example, a VM hostname properties updated by the VM poll.

Why not an "EXTRA_FIELD" section in the VM Templates to define them or simply leave free adding extra fields on VM.

This can be done though the VM poll. Just add any information you need and it will be added to the VM template.

I'm closing this. Feel free to add more comments/reopen if there are other things needed or if this is not working for you

Wonderful! Thank you for your answer.
It works fine!

Another question related. Is there now a way to see those extra monitoring info via OCCI?

not directly, you have to modify the VirtualMachineOCCI.rb file, there the OCCI_VM. That is an erb template used to generate the XML document for the VM. It should be more or less straighforward to add anything you need...

Indeed, That is what I did but I am wondering if it is still "OCCI compatible" then...?
