ESXTOP BALLOON DRIVER

The largest component of the service time is the time spent in retrieving data from physical storage. This is because some memory range is not available for use. The percentage of time a world spends waiting for the VMkernel to swap memory. See the filter section. This is the average response time in milliseconds per command being sent to the device. Each of the following lines contains the performance data for those counter instances in one snapshot. Actions Copy To Clipboard copy external link to clipboard copied!

So, this statistics is not used directly by admission control. In the case of interactive use of esxtop, the order in which the selected fields are displayed can be selected. If the “curr” is changing, you can bal,oon it is ballooning.
If we want to add both reasons into account, just to make it more complicated, we can have something like this. You can modify that as follows:. So, CPU stats balloon show vmm worlds.
A value of -1 means unlimited. Note that the actual ballooning is done for the VM group. The performance impact caused by ballooning is small and therefore preferred over swapping.

It uses a csv comma separated values format. Yes, it is also very bad.
The ID is typically cloaked and the group ID is displayed, unless the group is expanded with the “e” command.
Please note that the ballooning rate for a short term can be estimated by the change of “MCTLSZ”, assuming it is either increasing or decreasing. Note that the actual swapping is done at the group level.
Troubleshooting with ESXTOP
But, to simplify this document, we will ignore HT related issues. It is likely due to hyper-threading.
Troubleshooting ESX/ESXi virtual machine performance issues ()
The number of balolon in the group. The world ID is typically cloaked and the group ID is esxtpp, unless the group is expanded with the “e” command. The possible system services are interrupt handlers, bottom halves, and system worlds. After completing each step, determine whether the performance issue still exists. Number of write commands issued per second. Basically, if there is not enough free memory and ESX are experiencing swapping or ballooning, ESX box is under memory pressure.
Because swapin is synchronous, it will hurt guest performance a lot.
The first line contains the names of the performance counters and their instances. Set to “Y” when the balloon driver is active in the guest and “N” when not.
