We were lucky to have the opportunity to meet up with GlobalLogic at CES and talk to them about their Nautilus platform for automotive virtualization. A few years ago, no one understood why the company was demoing hypervisor technology as a part of Nautilus, a set of solution accelerators that includes architectural concepts, a modified Android OS distribution, and advanced UI concepts. Today, however, no one is questioning why they are using virtualization.

Below I will supply a small shell script to run on a XenServer node which will create a file /tmp/storage_map.csv you can import into Excel or LibreOffice without problems. The delimiter is comma (,).
echo "VM Name,VM UUID,VM Power Status,Disk Name,Disk UUID,Disk size in GB,SR Name" > /tmp/storage_map.csv
for i in `xe vm-list --minimal is-control-domain=false | tr , ' '`
VM_NAME="`xe vm-param-get uuid=$VM_UUID param-name=name-label`"
