xenstat.plugin collects XenServer and XCP-ng statistics.


  1. install xen-dom0-libs-devel and yajl-devel using the package manager of your system. Note: On Cent-OS systems you will need centos-release-xen repository and the required package for xen is xen-devel

  2. re-install Netdata from source. The installer will detect that the required libraries are now available and will also build xenstat.plugin.

Keep in mind that libxenstat requires root access, so the plugin is setuid to root.


The plugin provides XenServer and XCP-ng host and domains statistics:


  1. Number of domains.


  1. CPU.
  2. Memory.
  3. Networks.
  4. VBDs.


If you need to disable xenstat for Netdata, edit /etc/netdata/netdata.conf and set:

xenstat = no


You can run the plugin by hand:

sudo /usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/xenstat.plugin 1 debug

You will get verbose output on what the plugin does.
