Hello all,

The attached tarball contains a current snapshot of our Xen Resource
Monitoring project.  It includes a statistics-collection library,
libxenstat, and an ncurses-based real-time monitoring program, vm-top.

libxenstat is a library for gathering statistics about a Xen system,
including information about the node itself, the domains running on it,
and the devices connected to those domains (currently VCPUs and
networks) all in one place.  We plan on adding support for block
devices, as well as making use of xenstore to associate devices with

vm-top is an interactive real-time monitoring application based on
libxenstat and ncurses.  It displays a summary of the Xen system and a
list of the running domains with statistics about each.

Note that this project only works with the Xen 3.0 unstable tree,
changeset 5699 or later; it will not work with Xen 2.0.

For initial review and feedback, we're providing xenstat in the form of
a separately-packaged tarball; instructions for building, installing,
and running are in the README file included in the tarball.  We can also
easily supply xenstat in the form of a patch against the Xen tree,
integrated with the build system.

We are pleased to present this release of xenstat, and welcome any
feedback and suggestions on making it a part of Xen.
