Imagine you work in an environment with more than 1500 virtual machines and the numbers are still rapidly growing. When you work with a lot of resource pools, it’s an administrative burden to recalculate all your pools after you have deployed new virtual machines. The Dynamic Resource Pool Calculator recalculates all your resource pools. Depending on the numbers of virtual machines per resource pool, the resource pool reservations for memory and CPU are automatically lifted. The script also respects the existing individual virtual machine reservations and adds those value’s to the total RP sum.
When you start the script and logon to an ESX or Virtual Center server with some resource pools present, you will see a real Windows user interface and the script will actually talk to you.
