Citrix has announced this week that XenServer 6.2 is now fully open-source software. Citrix has made XenServer 6.2 available to all users as a free open-source virtualization platform, beyond just the Xen hypervisor that has been apart of the Linux kernel and one of the leading Linux virtualization systems aside from Linux KVM.
I am trying to get server info from a VM using the Citrix XenServer API, and the XAPI RRDs. The API itself returns some semi-useful data like last boot time etc, but I'm really after available memory and disk space per VM. I'm using PHP.
I am able to get a figure for free memory, but it's always wrong. It's usually returned as a few KB.
I have just been getting my feet wet with virtualization. I have played with VirtualBox and KVM on hosts running CentOS and Debian. I have also used VMWare a little bit in the past in a professional environment.
In a separate post of mine, someone suggested XenServer as it's used in professional environments.
