I've been developing an application for managing VMs in Perl, using the
Xen API as described in docs/xen-api.

My current version of Xen is bf8eacda088f, "Added tag 3.1.2-rc1 for
changeset 3855356c701d623daf2e8bef13dd4471f a9b3c91".

However, I'm finding a lot of dificulties:

* Some methods are still not implemented, like VM.name_description, but
  those aren't very important.

* I can't get the VDIs for a VBD (nor the VDIs for a SR). How am I
  supposed to get the backend of a VM's vbd?

  If I call the VBD.get_VDI, I get an empty value for the ref
  (communication attached).

* my network object has no PIFs, is this normal?

* In an older version of Xend (3.0.3), the host.get_log didn't escape
  the log correctly. Is this fixed? I can't reproduce on my host, but it
  could be something missing in my log.

Is there any documentation about the correct procedure and values for:

1. creating a VM, vbd or a vif;
2. attaching/detaching vbds/vifs from VMs.

Thank you for your help.

Luciano Rocha
