Dear old ESXTOP aka How to schedule ESXTOP…

Recently I had to record a night activity of a specific VM running on a specific host for troubleshooting reasons because vCenter data wasn’t just enough for that. Using a number of blog posts around from Duncan Epping and others (it was many, I don’t even have the links anymore) I’ve put up my personal guide about how to take over this task because every time it’s like I have to start from scratch so I decided to document it.

VMworld 2015: VMware released VAIO

At VMworld in San Francisco, VMware released vSphere APIs for IO filtering or VAIO (No relation with a certain laptop series). With VAIO, VMware offers a framework to develop filters that run in ESXi and can intercept any IO requests from a guest operating system to a virtual disk. An IO will not be issued or committed to disk without being processed by IO Filters created by 3rd parties.How does it work IO requests moving between the guest operating system (Initiator), located in the Virtual Machine Monitor(VMM), and a virtual disk (Consumer) are filtered through a series of two IO Filters (per disk), one filter per filter class, invoked in filter class order. For example, a replication filter executes before a cache filter. Once the IO…Read More
