    I just have one thing to say.

    Any idea of how advanced will the session be? or will it be geared for newbies to VMware and Powershell?

    I’m trying to decided if it will be worth it. I’m a current user of the VItoolkit and avid user of Powershell but I’m always looking to learn something new.

    Thanks in advance.

    We plan to have this somewhat mixed. There will be some introductory info, but we will also have Andrey demo his tips and tricks, and then go to showing how VI Toolkit and PowerGUI can be used to build custom UI admin consoles mashing up functionality one needs to manage host, guest, OS, and applications on top.

    So hopefully everyone will learn something new.

    If there are any specific areas you would like us to cover please post these here.

    That sounds great.

    Since you ask, if you are able to touch on generating baseline reports along with using the toolkit for automatically adjusting CPU Shares or adding additional RAM if resources are historically low would be interesting to see.

    Look forward to seeing the tips and tricks!

    I am curious about the baselining scenario. Is that an accurate description of what you have in mind:
    1. Pick a VM and designate it as a baseline (which parameters? just CPU and RAM consumption?)
    2. See which VMs are above the baseline.
    3. Export the list as a CSV.

    In the automated adjustment scenario, you would want a script to check for the CPU and RAM every 15 minutes or so, perform the adjustment, and send an email to administrator, correct?
