1 Resource Shares Dynamic resource management
Only used if there is resource contention Prevents a single VM from utilizing all the resources Prioritizes specific VM resource usage during contention 1000 Shares – 25% Number of Shares Equal (each has 25%) 2000 Shares – 22% 1000 Shares – 11% 4000 Shares – 45% Changing Share Values (% varies on # of shares) 11-8 Starting a VM changes resource allocation 2000 Shares – 20% 1000 Shares – 10% 4000 Shares – 40% Turning off VM changes resource allocation 2000 Shares – 22% 1000 Shares – 11% 4000 Shares – 45% 1000 Shares Turned off 1 Topic 1: Configuring Resource Pools

2 Expandable Reservations
Allow use of available parent resources when a Resource Pool’s Reservation for a resource has been reached Maximum of up to 12 levels of resource pools allowed Events that trigger Expandable Reservation use: Power on VM Create child resource pool Change resource pool reservation What is necessary to start VM2-1 below? 11-10 2 Topic 1: Configuring Resource Pools

3 Virtual Disk and Config files
How VMotion Works 1 Step One: 1 VM1-1 Users currently accessing VM1-1 on ESX1 Initiate migration of VM1-1 from ESX1 to ESX2 while VM1-1 is up and running 4 ESX Server 1 ESX Server 1 5 Step Two: Pre-copy memory from ESX1 to ESX2 Log ongoing memory changes into a memory bitmap on ESX1 2 3 11-18 Shared Storage Virtual Disk and Config files 2 Memory Quiesce virtual machine on ESX1 Copy memory bitmap to ESX2 Step Three: VM Motion Network CorpNet Network Memory Bitmap Memory Bitmap Fetch Pages/Copy Pages 5 Step Four: Start VM1-1 on ESX2 Users now access VM1-1 on ESX2 6 Step Five: Copy VM’s remaining memory (as listed in memory bitmap) from ESX1 Fetch pages from source VM when applications attempt to read/write modified memory in VM1-1 on ESX2 ESX Server 2 4 Step Six: Delete VM1-1 from ESX1 after migration is successful VM1-1 5 Topic 2: Configuring VMotion

4 Update Manager Downloads
Schedule the download of patches Repository Location Set during Install C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware Update Manager\Data (Default) Configured After Install Modify <patchStore> tag in C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\Update Manager\vci-integrity.xml file 11-73 2 Topic 6: Update Manager

5 Remediation ESX Hosts use the Hosts and Clusters View
VMs use the Virtual Machines and Templates View 11-74 4 Topic 6: Update Manager
