I have been trying to use the sizer. Is it possible you can expand on a few of the fields?

I assume the capacity column reflects the capacity of the physical servers I need to provide the VDI solution defined in the inputs column?

In the "inputs" column, what is the field for "Total Servers"? Which servers are these?

In the inputs column what is meant by the "parent VM configuration"?

In the inputs column what is meant by the "Server configuration"?



Agree with Andrew. Please describe your inputs a bit better.
