    ESXi Resource Management

      Hi, I recently performed an evaluation of vSphere 5.5 and I have a query about the meaning of some ESXi parameters.

       

       

      I can see from the resource management guide that there are three parameters relating to CPU resource allocation: shares, limit and reservation. When viewing the configuration of a virtual machine via vCenter, I can see four parameters: CPU Shares, Max CPU, Min CPU and Min CPU Limit. CPU Shares and Max CPU correspond to shares and limit, however it is not clear what Min CPU and Min CPU Limit correspond to. Presumably one of them corresponds to the reservation but what does the other mean?
