Thanks.  That is good to know. For reference here's what I found for
documentation as a start.  I still miss the old style docs like man
pages <G>!

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtua
lization/3.0/html-single/REST_API_Guide/#chap-REST_API_Guide-
Entry_Point - Examples and fairly good detail.  As this (https://fedora
hosted.org/rhevm-api/) says this is an effort to define an official
REST API for RHEV and the html link leads to this page.

http://www.ovirt.org/develop/api/rest-api/rest-api/ - a lot like the
python SDK docs with some examples, not a lot of actual info on the
calls.

https://metacpan.org/pod/Ovirt - does document some of the call
parameters

https://github.com/dougsland/ovirt-restapi-scripts - collection of
scripts for alomost every function.


One question I have as I read this.  In a hosted-engine environment how
do I use the SDK to tell if the Engine VM is running.  I could dump a
hosted-engine --vm-status and parse it's output but is there a better
way.  Assuming that since the host is running the Engine is does not
always hold true.
