Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for your feedback!

According to your message we made the following changes:

  • we have added the missing (C) in the files.
  • the second script from the tarball was removed, now there is only one python script which should be reviewed.
  • the tarball is still available under the URL,


If you have any further questions/demands please do not hesitate to contact us.

With kind regards,

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

You included two files with a different version on the tarball that I
downloaded from the URL that you point us, can you clarify what's the
version you want to be reviewed?

On the other hand you have the (C) missing on some files, please fix
this issue.

If you are willing to make the changes mentioned above, please provide
us with an URL to an updated tarball of your project.  Upon review, we
will reconsider your project for inclusion in Savannah.

To help us better keep track of your registration, please use the
tracker's web interface by following the link below. Do not reply
directly; the registration process is not driven by e-mail, and we
will not receive such replies.

Registration Details

  • Name: fxenponitor
  • System Name:  fxenponitor
  • Type: Official GNU software
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later


The target of this project is to monitor from a remote system (e.g. Debian Sarge) parameters like the cpu(s), memory, nic(s) I/O and disk(s) I/O utilisation of the dom0 ( no disk utilisation ) and the hosted guest systems on a XenServer host ( tested with version 4.0.1 and 4.1 ) and to store them ( with rrdtool ) into archives files.

It collects ( polls ) the data from the xapi via xmlrpclib through a https session. You can monitor several different host systems at once with this script. Another advantage is, halted or suspended guest systems are not monitored until the are running again.

Furthermore, if you add or delete a guest system, you dont have to do anything ( since you do not want to save the old rrd files from the deleted system, you have to delete them manually, if you want to ).

Other Software Required:

Xen Enterprise API:




optional (no need) drraw:
