I need to write a Java application that is collecting and monitoring (remotely and local) performance informations and metrics from a Xen hypervisor. This Java application should fetch the same informations from xen that xm info and xm top displays.

Used Xen version: Xen 4.1.3 with the daemon xend, the default toolstack and the console xm.


  • Can anyone tell me which direction I should look for a solution?

  • Is there a Java binding respectively a Java API for Xen (with xend and the default toolstack with xm)?

  • I understood it using Libvirt (that has a Java binding) requires to use the toolstack Libvirt in Xen. So, is it possible to have both installed, the default toolstack and Libvirt?

  • Or are the performance informations available via XML-RPC when using xend (without Libvirt or XAPI)?
