Won't get a price for elegance, but what about polling the "Time(s)" column in "xm list" every few seconds

 /usr/sbin/xm list | grep "^$domname" | gawk '{ print $6 }'

and calculating the differences?

True enough!

Something elegant (and accessible via SNMP) would be nice, but this would certainly work.

I'll have to look at hacking that up.. :)

Thanks! Forgot that 'xm list' included CPU time, too. Heh.  :)

On another note, anyone have any ideas of calculating something like the 'load average' of Xen itself (so you can know if you're pegging the CPU on the box constantly)? As far as I know, the xm command doesn't give anything helpful in that regard.
