One useful command is
# xm list which lists all domains running in rows
of the following format:
name domid memory vcpus state cputime
The meaning of each field is as follows:
- The descriptive name of the virtual machine.
- The number of the domain ID this virtual machine is
- Memory size in megabytes.
- The number of virtual CPUs this domain has.
- Domain state consists of 5 fields:
- How much CPU time (in seconds) the domain has used so
The xm list command also supports a long output format when the
-l switch is used. This outputs the full details of the
running domains in xend's SXP configuration format.
You can get access to the console of a particular domain using
# xm console command (e.g.
# xm console myVM).
