Cool :-)

Note: to read the data from a Xen guest, you'll need to use the
"collect" tool, currently in mirage-trace-viewer
(https://github.com/talex5/mirage-trace-viewer), which can be built

$ ./configure --enable-collect

It's conditional because it depends on xenstore_transport.unix, which
requires the Xen headers to be installed. I don't know if there's some
existing tool for dumping a Xen shared memory region that I should be
using instead.

Are you using AWS? Some extra work may be needed there, since you
don't have access to dom0. Can you dump the RAM somehow using their
