This is probably a bit off-topic for the Xen mailing lists...

libvirt-cim  is a CIM agent written against the libvirt APi that
currently supports Xen, KVM and LXC. It implements the DMTF schema
for virtualizations, for more information about that just consult
the DMTF docs for that spec, or the libvirt-cim website at


virsh is a command line tool that uses the main libvirt API directly, which
is a API below libvirt-cim. For information about libvirt in general go
to the website where there'a  variety of docs, and a link to the mailing
list where any libvirt questions are welcome
