Thanks Mike -

I went through the docs below, but is there a way to list out all the
performance metrics available for showing the performance of the base
XenServer (not the virtual machines). I am getting cpu, memory, disk, but we
seem to get a lot more metrics from VMware for example, metrics that seem to
give health information of how the base hypervisor is performing.

Hi Vikas,

On one of your hosts, try doing a 'xe host-datasource-list host=<blah>' and 'xe vm-datasource-list vm=<blah>'. This will show you a list of all the datasources that can be recorded as RRDs. Not all of them are enabled by default, which is probably why you didn't see everything you expected. I have no idea whether we capture the same metrics as VMWare do, but hopefully the ones we do capture will be enough for you.
