As most of you should know VMware is organising a scripting contest, called Script-O-Mania. For those of you that haven’t submitted anything yet, hurry up. The closing date is tomorrow (March 15th 2010).
After some reflection I decided to go for a performance monitoring script. I wanted to have the vCenter client performance tab, without having to pay for the vCenter Agent license. And I wanted to offer some of the functionality that esxtop provided on the classic ESX systems.
That’s where my PSTop v1 script came to be.
The actual script is not yet included in this post. I’m going to wait for that untill VMware has published the results of the competition. At that time I will also publish my Annotations for the script.
To give you some ideas what this PSTop v1 script is all about, a short introductory video (no sound).
And two screenshots of a host
and a guests graph.
Watch this space for the script and the annotations !
