https://youtu.be/ZzjpyuK7aB4 AppInfo plugin in VMware Tools 11 enables the collection of the running application processes within a Guest OS and publishes that information to VM guestInfo Property called as guestinfo.appinfo. For each application running inside the guest, the name and version information is captured and published by the plugin. The appInfo plugin collects the information in every 30 minutes … Continue reading AppInfo plugin in VMware Tools 11.x
In this article, we will explore NSX-T 3.0 architecture components and try to understand the key concepts behind each of them. NSX-T provides the complete set of networking and security services such as switching, routing, fire walling, load balancing, QoS, IDS in software. These services can be programmatically assembled in arbitrary combinations to produce unique, … Continue reading NSX-T 3 Components
Although vRealize Suite is made up of several products, it is a single solution with a single license. All the components of a vRealize Suite edition are licensed as a single entity.
https://youtu.be/ZxUVk0haIKA This post will be focussing specifically on working of CPU scheduler in Default, SCA v1 and SCA v2 modes in 6.7 U2 and later. VMware vSphere 6.7 U2 added new scheduler options (SCA v2) which provides security for L1TF vulnerability, while retaining as much performance as possible. Note: SCA is the abbreviation for Side … Continue reading vSphere 6.7 U2 & later CPU Scheduler modes: Default, SCA v1 and SCA v2
This will be the last post in this series. In this post, we are going to discuss hypervisor swapping as next method after compression. ESXi employs hypervisor swapping to reclaim memory, if other memory reclamation techniques like ballooning, transparent page sharing, and memory compression are not sufficient to reclaim memory. Transparent Page Sharing (TPS) speed … Continue reading VMware vSphere 7.x Memory Reclamation-Part 6: Hypervisor Swapping
In this post, we are going to discuss about memory compression cache technique used by ESXi host. In previous posts we have already discussed TPS and ballooning. So compression is the next technique in order that gets initialized when ESXi host is under memory contention. ESXi provides a memory compression cache to improve virtual machine … Continue reading VMware vSphere 7.x Memory Reclamation-Part 5: Memory Compression Cache
After TPS in previous post, we will explore Ballooning reclamation technique in this post. Basically I am just following the order in which these techniques are initialized. Ballooning is a process where the hypervisor reclaims memory back from the virtual machine. Also if ballooning is started on an ESXi host, it indicates the beginning of … Continue reading VMware vSphere 7.x Memory Reclamation-Part 4: Ballooning
