I am fairly new to xen.


I have installed Xen to solve the following problem:

 I want to run an arbitrary binary in a sandboxed environment (like virtual machine) and get the execution trace ( that is all the instructions executed  while running) of the application. With this execution trace, I am developing algorithm to compare with the static disassembly to check for mismatch and find out possibility of the binary being a malicious software.


 However I do not how to get the entire execution trace of an application in Xen. It would be great if some one can suggest how to get the execution trace on xen.

 Obviously I don't want to run the application under debug / ptrace, because many malicious softwares are intelligent enough and act as good guys when run under debug mode.
