Last week I got back from holiday, had a wonderful time in France with great weather. Anyway, we're looking into changing one pool with virtual desktops from one vCPU to two vCPUs. Looking a CPU load on every host in the cluster should allow that, but we are very curious what the ready time would be.
Ready time is a VM metric, but we want to know the 'average' on the whole cluster. PowerCLI to the rescue:
Mr. @esloof did a nice tweet about this one and caught my attention. It's a very nice diagram in pdf format showing the memory management for vSphere 5. The thing I like best is the way it is set up: screenshot from esxtop, vSphere client and very clear mapping of virtual memory into physical memory. I'm printing it on A2 and stick it onto a wall and look at it from time to time. I suggest you do the same . Check it out here.
