Subject Re: Is it possible to find out the active supervisor nodes through a program?

Yes, the Nimbus thrift interface provides an API for querying a Storm cluster, and is exactly
what Storm UI uses to get the information it displays. 

As far as “active” supervisors, it depends on what you mean by “active”. If by active
you mean “up and known to Nimbus” then the list returned by the thrift API should be enough,
if you mean “has active worker processes” then you’ll have to do additional work (not
much) to see if it has any used slots.
