I see that xenstat (lib and xentop) code is all written in C. Is there python front-end available for this library or is anyone working on the same?

It would be great to have one, because that can be first step to building distributed access to xenstat (I see this mentioned in 'To think about' in TODO).

If no one is working on it I can give it a shot. I saw two instances in xen source tree, that pull data from low level C code up to python scripts:
1. The way xend interacts with lowlevel xc.c
2. Xenmon and Xenbaked - through a scratch file created on disk.

First approach looks more efficient even though slightly more difficult.

Let me know if anyone has any plans on these lines.

Everything you can imagine is real
