NAME ^

Xen::API Perl interface to the Xen RPC-XML API.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Xen::API;
  my $x = Xen::API->new;

  my %vms = $x->list_vms
  my %templates = $x->list_templates

  my $vm = $x->create_vm(template=>'my_template',cpu=>4,memory=>'16G',vmname=>'this_vm');

  my $vm_records = $x->Xen::API::VM::get_all_records();

DESCRIPTION ^

Perl interface to the Xen RPC-XML API. Contains some shortcuts for creating, destroying, importing, and exporting VMs. All RPC API commands are available in the Xen::API:: package space. Simply replace the dots with :: and prepend Xen::API:: to the command, and execute it as if it were a perl function. Be sure to pass the Xen object as the first parameter.
