    Resource Groups as a percentage of the whole

      VMware,

       

      It would be really slick if instead of having to put in how much cpu in mhz or how much ram in MB or GB that I want in a resource group I could just give it a percentage of the whole pool.

       

      So if I have 25Ghz and 16 GB of RAM, and I want to create a high priority resource group with a 10% reserve and 50% limit, I could just put in 10% and 50% instead of 2.5 Ghz and 1.6GB of RAM.

       

      This is a simple example but when you are configuring many groups using a percentage of the whole it becomes a lot harder to keep track of and much easier to make mistakes.

       

      Also if resource groups where done this way, I would not have to redo my resource groups when new hardware is made available to the pool.
