Pass metadata to VM on launch

the lack of any ability to pass any kind of metadata or customizations into the launched workers is causing us some headaches. Our current workflow relies on being able to correlate the VM instances launched with those connected to Jenkins. With GCP etc, that's easy as we can set the VM name on launch, and that information passes down into the VM... 
 
Would like to pass at least the hostname to the VM

    I can't stress this enough how important this feature is for those organizations that launch multiple replicas and just can't differentiate them without some sort of metadata access from within VM.

    Thank you very much for the feedback Jan! We will take this to the development team. It is very helpful to know what other similar experience customers enjoy using.

    VM tagging/labeling would be also a welcome feature, something similar to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/Using_Tags.html

    Metadata on VM: A customer would like a file with (minimum) container ID and node/port information on creation.

    Possible solution: Create K8s label for pod, persisted as env variable. written to file and persisted to MacOS.
