Identifying resource contention from within the guest OS (VMware ESXi) (400)

Speaker: Valentin Bondzio

Ever argued with your virtualization team about the performance of your VMs? Did it take forever to eliminate or double down on the virtualization layer while you had to twiddle your thumbs? You don’t have to sit idle. There are numerous ways from inside the guest OS to check performance statistics of the VM itself. Where those metrics are and what they tell you will be covered in this session. Last but not least, we’ll also discuss how to talk to the virtualization team, in their language, on what to do if something isn’t nominal.
