VMWare probe - resources consumed by Virtual Centre when polling for metrics

Discussion created by DaveH on Feb 9, 2011

Hi All,


I've just demo'd to Rackspace in the UK and they had a question around resource consumption, specifically they wanted to know typically how much resource is consumed by Virtual Centre when we poll it for metrics.  Obviously this is going to depend on the polling frequency and the number of metrics we are collecting.  Does anyone have any ball park figures?
