Re: [Xen-users] xentop missing domain state marker

makes sense. But we probable need a better state 'm' to show the domains
are being migrated ?

No it is not. If you have raw data collected from xentop / xenrec etc
and you try to do some numerical analysis with that you are doomed.
Or we have a valid state, say 'm' or we need to mark it as NA. Tools
like Mathematica, R etc will digest NA. They wont digest ------ or worse
this could lead some silent other bugs. Like in my case xenrec.

Thanks a lot. I will do that. As soon as Im repeating the tests and read
