Projects / XGuests


XGuests is a program to display useful information about guests running under the Xen hypervisor in a variety of formats. Formats include: XML, PHP, Perl, bash, text, and more. Additionally, xguests will run as a daemon and continuously update statistics files which other scripts can easily include. This avoids scraping the output of "xm" and other tools. Xguests does not rely on the xend daemon to be running. It gets statistics significantly faster than its Python counterparts on systems that house many guests.

      Release Notes: This release fixes some minor bugs and provides additional creature comforts such as generic init scripts to start xguests on boot and automatic determination of output type by file extension. SIGUSR1 now causes the file to be updated immediately. A man page was added. The help display was fixed to work properly with programs like help2man. Guest status is now included in all output. The "list" output type was added, which emulates "xm list".
