    Run VMmark benchmark automatically

    benioO Lurker

      Hello,

      In the VMmark 3.0 documentation under section "Running VMmark benchmark" I found a note that it's impossible to run the application without GUI.

      From page 65:

      "NOTE Whichever method you use to start STAX, a VMmark run can be started only from the prime client
      GUI. Runs can’t be started if the prime client is in text only mode or from an SSH session.
      "

       

      So my question is: Is it really impossible to run it via ssh or trigger it using Invoke-VMScript from PowerCLI?

          Hello,

           

          Thank you for your inquiry.  The documentation is correct; currently, the VMmark 3.0 benchmark must be started from the prime client GUI.

           

          That said, I have passed your feedback onto the development team, and we will consider adding a feature to run the benchmark from PowerCLI or SSH in a future version.

           

          Thanks,

          David
