This tool does a great job of fetching loads of information from the Virtual Infrastructure and saves lot of time for the VI administrator, otherwise we need to run multiple script to fetch similar data.

RVTools is able to list information about VMs, CPU, Memory, Disks, Partitions, Network, Floppy drives, CD drives, Snapshots, VMware tools, Resource pools, Clusters, ESX hosts, HBAs, Nics, Switches, Ports, Distributed Switches, Distributed Ports, Service consoles, VM Kernels, Datastores, Multipath info and health checks.

Ravi IT Blog 2015 year review : Thank you for your support

 

thEAIO50YJ

The year was fantastic both personally and professionally, achieved my goals like VCAP5-DCA in February, followed by vExpert title. Later the end of the year joined HPE as Technology consultant. The new job offered Designing / Consulting opportunity and also to work with some experienced Infrastructure consultants and Architect at HPE Chennai. This also means no more “on-call” work. :)

The most important accomplishment in 2015 was being blessed with a Baby boy during October. The year 2016 started and I would focus on enhancing my skills in designing ,VCAP DCD and TOGAF certification. My blog has been viewed 15233 times with 7467 unique sessions last year, unfortunatly the last post appeared in May 2015. That is something I need to make sure it doesn’t happen in 2016.
