The QEMU monitor is not available through libvirt or virt-manager.

libvirt has various commands that let you see how much memory and
other details are being used by the guest.  Take a look at the 'virsh'
commands:

http://libvirt.org/virshcmdref.html

In particular,

  virsh dommemstat Domain

should get the information you need, for a guest called 'Domain'.
