It would be great to have uptime support for XenServer deployments, do you think it's possible?

Thanks for the feedback, we have had a number of Xen requests from other users as well.

Depending on the depth of information you are looking for you could look at building a plugin monitor to gather some additional XenServer metrics. For example a script could be build to parse output from xentop/xenstat to produce CPU/MEM usage per-vm in a stacked graph format similar to the built in VMware graphing. Of course this isn't a seamless solution and doesn't have any licensing advantages but it's a start. The Solaris Zone plug-in monitor (http://support.uptim.../?showtopic=218) is actually a great example of doing this, it compliments the data that's collected by the agent on each zone in addition to the global zone.

Can you provide a little more detail on exactly what you are looking to monitor within your Xen environment so we can forward this info to product management.
