Description Cole Robinson 2015-09-20 13:28:31 EDT
Since libvirt 1.2.8 there's an API virConnectGetAllDomainStats that allows fetching all stats and domain status info for all domains in one API call, which will definitely can definitely reduce a lot of the remaining polling we do in virt-manager.

API: https://libvirt.org/html/libvirt-libvirt-domain.html#virConnectGetAllDomainStats

Python example getting all active domain state+stats in one go:

$ cat test.py
import libvirt
import pprint

conn = libvirt.open("qemu:///system")
ret = conn.getAllDomainStats(

$ python test.py 
[(<libvirt.virDomain object at 0x7ff5424b3490>,
  {'cpu.system': 229450000000L,
   'cpu.time': 1136059669906L,
   'cpu.user': 118530000000L,
   'state.reason': 1,
   'state.state': 1}),
 (<libvirt.virDomain object at 0x7ff5424b34d0>,
  {'cpu.system': 2088720000000L,
   'cpu.time': 7899984603220L,
   'cpu.user': 28280000000L,
   'state.reason': 1,
   'state.state': 1})]
