VMware ESX minnehåndtering

By , 31 mai, 2009 21:46

Arnim Van Lieshout har skrevet tre veldig gode artikler om VMware ESX minnehåndtering, noe som burde være interessant lesing for alle som jobber med VMware ESX.

Part 1: Grunnleggende om allocated memory, reservations, limits, shares og resource pools. http://www.van-lieshout.com/2009/04/esx-memory-management-part-1/

Part2: Hvordan den enkelte virtuelle maskin bruker minne http://www.van-lieshout.com/2009/05/esx-memory-management-part-2/

Part3: Transparent Page Sharing (TPS), ballooning, tips til bruk av esxtop, swapping og idle memory tax.  http://www.van-lieshout.com/2009/05/esx-memory-management-%e2%80%93-part-3/

De som ønsker å gå i dybden for hvordan limit innstillinger påvirker de virtuelle maskinene bør lese denne bloggartikkelen av VMGuru.com, Scott Herold: http://www.vmguru.com/index.php/articles-mainmenu-62/mgmt-and-monitoring-mainmenu-68/96-memory-behavior-when-vm-limits-are-set

Looking forward to read more about VI3 architecture

By , 7 september, 2008 21:21

After a long time of waiting I finally received the book VMware Infrastructure 3: Advanced Technical Design Guide and Advanced Operations Guide. 803 pages of pure VMware VI3 tips for architecture, administration and best practices. I have just reached chapter two and I am looking forward to read the rest of the book.

The book looks so far very good, too.
