VKernel Releases Free Capacity View Tool

VKernel has released a new free tool for VM admins called Capacity View which provides a dashboard style view into a VMware environment and provides information on available capacity for VM deployments.  The tool is a desktop application that can be downloaded and connected to ESX, vCenter, or VKernel's VM Stats or Optimization Pack applications.

Capacity View identifies capacity based performance issues such as virtual machine I/O latency or under-allocated CPU, memory or storage.  It can also monitor your available capacity for new VM deployments and show you which over-provisioned VMs can be rightsized to free up wasted capacity.

It also provides you with:

  • Numbers of VMs, hosts, data stores, clusters and resource pools
  • Total available physical resources (CPU, memory and storage)
  • Total allocated virtual resources as a % of physical
