Thread-topic: [Xen-users] performance monitoring of VMs
Have you tried using XenMon 
(http://www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/2005/HPL-2005-187.html) or XenoProf 
(http://xenoprof.sourceforge.net)? Those are performance monitoring tools for 
Xen that give you quite some detailed information.

Any suggestions?

I tried to use libvirt, however the xen and the kernel were compiled from 
source. If I want to install libvirt from yum (CentOS 5.0) the dependencies 
need to install xen and xen-kernel. The source compiled xen seems to have some 
compatibility issues in the links of the scripts with the yum installed xen 
(whenever I yum install something related to xen, xm crashes).

What I need is a sar (sysstat) like detailed performance monitoring tool down 
to the hypervisor level (treat each VM as a process) and report the most 
detailed execution info for each VM (e.g. the real page fault rate of each VM).

Any ideas?
