Here’s a new free VMware basic capacity utility from the folks over at VKernel that I thought was worth drawing your attention to. It’s called ‘Capacity View’ and “identifies capacity based performance issues such as virtual machine I/O latency or under-allocated CPU, memory or storage. Additionally, it monitors your available capacity for new VM deployments and shows you which over-provisioned VMs can be rightsized to free up wasted capacity."
I thought I’d try something a little different by putting together a quick 5 minute review video that provides you will an overview of the product. The video shows you the install process, configuration and then the final thing. This should give you a good feel as to what the product is about and whether it’ll have any application in your own VMware vSphere environment.
Let me know whether you find this 5 minute video review format useful and your thoughts on ‘Capacity View’. 🙂
