Based on the output of the related QEMU bz there is an event:


 {"execute": "dump-guest-memory", "arguments": { "detach": true,
"paging": false, "protocol": "file:/home/dump.normal"}}
{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1489391067, "microseconds": 147976}, "event":
"STOP"}
{"return": {}}
{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1489391068, "microseconds": 219429}, "event":
"DUMP_COMPLETED", "data": {"result": {"total": 2164457472, "status":
"completed", "completed": 2164457472}}}
{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1489391068, "microseconds": 219876}, "event":
"RESUME"}

 {"execute": "query-dump"}
{"return": {"total": 2164457472, "status": "completed", "completed":
2164457472}}


Yet more code to go learn I guess.
