xenstat.plugin

xenstat.plugin collects XenServer and XCP-ng statistics.

Prerequisites

  1. install xen-dom0-libs-devel and yajl-devel using the package manager of your system.

  2. re-install netdata from source. The installer will detect that the required libraries are now available and will also build xenstat.plugin.

Keep in mind that libxenstat requires root access, so the plugin is setuid to root.

Charts

The plugin provides XenServer and XCP-ng host and domains statistics:

Host: 1. Number of domains.

Domain: 1. CPU. 2. Memory. 3. Networks. 4. VBDs.

Configuration

If you need to disable xenstat for netdata, edit /etc/netdata/netdata.conf and set:

[plugins]
    xenstat = no

Debugging

You can run the plugin by hand:

sudo /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/xenstat.plugin 1 debug

You will get verbose output on what the plugin does.
