I'm not sure if this is the task for CloudStack.

If we go down this path, are we also going to check if new apt/yum 
updates are available on KVM platforms?

CloudStack should set a minimum version of which the Xen server should 
be updated to to work with properly, but I don't think CloudStack should 
actually be checking which updates are available.

Where does it end? Later on we are also going to check if a update for 
the F5 loadbalancer is available or for the NetScaler or for a Brocade 

It's only adding code to the management server which needs to stay 
simplistic imho.

These kinds of task should be outsourced to tools like Zabbix, Nagios, 
Incinga, SolarWinds, etc, but I don't think this is something CloudStack 
should do.
