Virtual Machine Un-respensive- Help needed

Team,

I am facing problem with one VM. suddenly the VM got Un-Responsive and even I am not able to power Off the machine. It is taking very long time to power Off.

After analyzing the out put of esxtop I have noticed the below values for the VM. Kindly suggest your recommendation to resolve the issue with the help of the out put.

   ID           GID        LWID      NAME     NWLD   %USED    %RUN    %SYS   %WAIT    %VMWAIT    %RDY     %IDLE  %OVRLP   %CSTP   %MLMTD    %SWPWT

2426057  2426057 1358978    THOR     14            0.00          0.01      0.00      377.25    0.00              1022.28    0.00        0.00           0.00      1022.28          0.00

%MLMTD is The percentage of time the vCPU was ready to run but deliberately wasn’t scheduled because that would violate the “CPU limit” settings. If larger than 0 the world is being throttled due to the limit on CPU.

Check below KB if this helps.

You are deffiently CPU restricted on that VM.  Try reducing your vCPU count or removing some limits on that VM.

Here is a good guide with some thresholds you should try to maintain for best performance:
