resxtop vMA 4.1

Hi

Yesterday I installed a clean vMA 4.1. When I call resxtop to a ESXi 4.0 host and tries to see the storage (disk) VM resource utilization screen an empty screen comes up, like there are no VM's running on the host. There is no problem in the cpu, mem and other disk screens.

Does anyone have the same problem and are there any fixes/workarounds?

I have not tested againts any ESXi 4.1 hosts btw.

Any one get an answer to this question? I am able to see the disk stats for VMs on a 4.1 host, but not on a 4.0 host. For not I am going to use the version 4.0 instead of vMA 4.1.

Thanks,

As mentioned before, it looks like a bug. I can confirm the same behavior. If you want a confirmation on whether this is a true bug, you'll probably want to file a ticket with VMware.

Well I don't think it's a bug.

We have VMA 4.1. I have an ESXi 4.0 host build 244038.

vCenter is 4.1

Works fine, no blank screen. I see the VMs, CPU and Memory all fine.

RParker,

The issue is with displaying the VM Disk or using option "v", cpu/memory has always worked. I'm able to reproduce the error when connecting to ESX 4.0 and 4.1 host, you don't get the VM's disk stats when connecting to ESX(i) 4.0 using vMA 4.1 or vCLI 4.1

After doing a bit of research the resxtop issue is actually in the vCLI 4.1 installation, this issue occurs if you install vCLI 4.1 on separate Linux system which I confirmed using CentOS. I've already contacted the vMA product manager regarding the issue and hopefully we'll see a patch or new release for vCLI 4.1 and vMA 4.1

I also wrote about the issue on my blog here - http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2010/10/resxtop-bug-in-vma-41.html You can monitor it for new updates

Thanks
