Thank you.

We actually wish to have fast sync and XML-RPC seems be to bloated and have very strange issues with inner objects conversions (f.e. last_boot, other config and many others strings with format 'parse it yourself').

And we feel it can be really interesting to change some values of object unchangable via XenAPI, for example set every PV VM marked as 'pv-drivers-up-to-date' (is this field have any meaning for PV guest?), change their limits without shutdown (they will take place at near reboot time) and many others.

Not yet, it's internal only. Is there anything you need at the database level 
that's not available in the API?

Good day.

I wonder if there is way to access xapi data lower than XenAPI... I
means any other way to access them form host where xapi master

I look to sources and found some DB interface. It it available outside
xapi binary?

And I saw some json-related functions. Is any way to get access to data
in json format?
