New Tools! – VMware CPU Host Info

Found this over on Run-Virtual.com

Interested in knowing if all your physical ESX servers are the same? VMware CPU Host Info will help you find out. The application gathers the important system information from your hosts and puts this in one single overview.

The program will tell you if your servers are VT capable and more important if this feature is turned on. I have found that on most my servers, this feature is disabled in the BIOS.

At some point in time VMware will provide a new cool feature called FT, this ‘Fault Tolerant’ feature will only work with the latest processors. This program will also let you know if your processors are new enough :-) (you have to have harpertown or above).

At the Login screen just provide your username, password and the IP/DNS of your Virtual Center. After the login, the program will collect from all hosts the Vendor, Model, CPU Types and the CPU feature bits.

Pretty Cool, No?

  • Does it really worth it that much to purchase Virtual Center? Would it be worth it to purchase Virtual center
    If I don't upgrade my VI3 from standard to Enterprise. The post above cheered me up a lot into buying it, but it did not
    mention what it will give & not give in standard edition.

  • There are many benefits to having a Virtual Center. The first being centralized administration of all of your hosts & VM's. I can't speak to the different editions and what they offer as well as your VMware Account manager. I do know, that I couldn't live without mine. It makes a great place to start with automation, and management, one place to go for reporting, etc, rather than having to query all of the hosts.

  • Hi,

    we are considering to buy a VMware Virtual Center.
    We have two servers running VMware Standard edition.
    Do you believe it will be worth it? Or do we have to
    upgrade our VMware licenses to Enterprise before upgrading
    virtual center to make it worth it. I had just read the
    following article

  • The worth is up to you and what you are trying to accomplish, but if you
    will ever be expanding beyond two, or will be using HA/VMotion you'll want
    to upgrade. I can't speak to how you would need to change licensing
    however, you'd be better off talking to a VMware sales rep.
