7. Xenstore

Xenstore is the mechanism by which control-plane activities occur. These activities include:

  • Setting up shared memory regions and event channels for use with the split device drivers.
  • Notifying the guest of control events (e.g. balloon driver requests)
  • Reporting back status information from the guest (e.g. performance-related statistics, etc).

The store is arranged as a hierachical collection of key-value pairs. Each domain has a directory hierarchy containing data related to its configuration. Domains are permitted to register for notifications about changes in subtrees of the store, and to apply changes to the store transactionally.
