Tool: vcPlus

After the virtual machine self-service portal, anticipating of years advent of VDI, Richard Garsthagen, Technical Marketing Manager at VMware, started a new personal project on his own blog.

vcPlu is a Windows service able to interact with VMware VirtualCenter 2.x and show detailed informations about monitored virtual machines:

  • Virtual Disk usage (seen from within the VM)
  • Snapshot presence and size

vcPlus also allows to sync the guest operating system FQDN to the display name of the virtual machine in Virtual Center. In next released Richard already planned to introduce an advanced alarm system able to send an email when monitored details reach thresholds.
