Thanks for the heads up.

My only comment is that generally hosts are already some kind of monitoring
daemon (e.g. collectd) -- and this will mean they may have to end up running

If there one tht RHEL customers tend to run? If so, perhaps a plugin to that
to extract the information would be simpler / less intrusive.

For the guest side, it sounds like you will be inventing a text based
protocol to ask for statistical information about the host -- I just wonder
if such a protocol already exists. And if there is already a client for
that, then the guest side would just be the channel hookup, rather than any
client dev.
