Ok, from where, exactly, you want to know that? From host? From guest?
At what level (hypervisor, toolstack, user space program running in

I have to admit that, in no one of the cases I tried to enumerate, we
have a good method in place to gather that information, but answering
(and, of course, implementing one) differs a lot in the various cases...

Right now, in the host, if you send Xen the 'u' debug key, and then
check the console, you'll see just that. It can be achieved with
something like this:

# xen debug-key u
# xen dmesg | tail

I really think we must make it easier to retrieve this kind of
information, and I'll be up to make that happen ASAP. :-)

That is something very difficult. I am working on it, and I released an
RFC, with the basic architecture of the solution I'd like to have
implemented in the coming months. It is here:


Have a look, and feel free to comment! :-P
